Hackensack University Medical Center Recognizes EMS with Summertime BBQ

September 16, 2011 11:45 AM


Hackensack University Medical Center recently hosted a classic, summertime BBQ to honor the dedicated EMS personnel serving its emergency departments in Hackensack and Westwood.  Complete with red and white checkered tablecloths, balloons and summer daisies, the parking lot of Hackensack University Medical Center at Pascack Valley was transformed into a picnic setting for EMS squads from throughout Bergen County. Attendees enjoyed music, BBQ, and much deserved down time on a beautiful summer evening.  Tours of Hackensack University Medical Center’s MACH vehicle, a 43-foot box truck fully outfitted with seven critical care beds, were available to guests. Many of Bergen County’s elected officials were also in attendance to recognize the squads for their round-the-clock commitment to patient care.
