We had another resident scammed out of $2300 from someone posing to be from social security. We understand that this seems ridiculous to most, that someone would fall for this but it’s happening more often than we would like. If anyone calls and and asks you to pay with GOOGLE GIFT CARDS OR ITUNES CARDS or any means of GIFT CARDS OR PREPAID CARDS IT IS A SCAM!! Legitimate companies will not ask you to pay anything like this. Please share with your elderly family and family that do not have social media.

I am always surprised when someone doesn't know who Officer William's was and what he did. Such an important part of our history that I will share his story over and over. I posted this about him on the anniversary of his death last year. Please take a moment to read the newspaper articles.

Officer Alvin P Williams of the Woodbridge Police Department, made the ultimate sacrifice when he heroically jumped into Sucker Creek trying to save 2 drowning children. Unfortunately the 3 did not make.

Alvin P Williams-End of watch September 6, 1979.

Attached is a photo of the painting that hangs in Woodbridge Police Department and a photo of Officer Williams. I have also attached the newspaper articles from 1956 when he passed the police test, the 1958 hiring announcement and the New York Times article from September 7, 1979 about the drowning.

Here is a link to the unveiling of the memorial.

Woodbridge Police Department Presents:
“Don’t Be A Statistic: Teen Drunk Driving Awareness Program”

Interactive Program Targets Real-Life Dangers & Consequences
of Drunk, Drugged & Distracted Driving

WHAT: The Woodbridge Police Department (WPD) will host “Don’t Be a Statistic” – a drunk-driving awareness program geared toward high school students at Woodbridge, John F. Kennedy Memorial and Colonia High Schools. With the coming prom season and graduation events just around the corner, the WPD has taken the offensive and is presenting hard-hitting and “to-the-point” information to educate high school Senior’s about the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving.

“Don’t Be a Statistic” features drama students from each high school playing out scenes from a drunk driving auto accident using actual cars demolished in drunk driving accidents, along with WPD vehicles, FAS, Fire and OEM ambulances and first response vehicles. “Don’t Be a Statistic” illustrates the potential consequences brought about by driving while intoxicated and distracted driving as part of the outreach to encourage young people to make positive decisions at their prom and thereafter.

ATTENTION!!! SCAM ALERT!!!
SECRET SHOPPER SCAM.
A 73 year old came to HQ to report that he received a package that he believed was from Walmart that stated he was chosen to be a secret shopper. He deposited 5 money orders totaling $4,900.00 that he received into his bank account. He then purchased $4,000.00 in money orders and mailed them to an address in Texas. Today he learned that the money orders he put into his account were fraudulent and he was out the $4,000.00.

Did you know it is National EMS Week?
May 19 – 25, 2019 marks the 45th annual National EMS week, as authorized by President Gerald Ford in 1974. President Ford chose to acknowledge EMS practitioners for their hard work and dedication within their communities. On a local level, EMT’s are often celebrated at the hospitals with a variety of snacks and food available when they deliver patients to the ER.
In Woodbridge Township, there are four first aid squads: Avenel-Colonia First Aid Squad (ACFAS), Colonia First Aid Squad (CFAS), Port Reading First Aid Squad (PRFAS), and the Woodbridge Township Ambulance and Rescue Squad (WTARS). All four organizations are staffed with paid Emergency Medical Technicians. WTARS also has a roster of volunteer EMT’s.
In total, the four organizations respond to approximately 1,000 calls for service per month. This includes calls in all parts of Woodbridge Township, as well as mutual aid to surrounding areas as needed. EMT’s deal with a variety of emergencies on a daily basis – anything from lift assists to CPR calls, and everything you can think of in between. No two calls are the same and EMT’s must constantly remain alert to their surroundings while assisting the public.
Currently, the New Jersey EMT program is considered to be the equivalent of a 6 credit college course, with students studying a minimum of 190 hours, while also participating in clinical time at a local hospital. After an individual earns their EMT certification, they are required to recertify every three years by taking Continuing Education Courses. These CEU courses total 48 hours of additional training within the 3 year period. Although rewarding, being an EMT is not an easy task.
You may have recently read in the news that there is a critical shortage in EMT’s around the nation, particularly in New Jersey and New York. EMT’s work tirelessly to support their community in both good times and bad. There is no exception in Woodbridge Township. Our EMT’s range from college students to grandparents. They are often exposed to hectic situations and are trained to do all that they can to save a life if needed. You may see them at concerts and street fairs, or motor vehicle accidents and fires. Without fail, they will be there for you during your time of need.
To our EMT’s – we thank you for your dedication and commitment to the Township of Woodbridge, our residents, and all those that visit and pass through town. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. We are grateful for all that you do and are so glad to have you as part of the team!
