The Clayton Free Press in association with the Gloucester County Animal Shelter is proud to sponsor this month’s special pet available for immediate adoption ! ! !

Our April Pet of the Month is Tigger. He is a nine year young, brown tabby cat who is neutered and front declawed. He does not mind being held and he loves to be petted. He is very talented with his tricks, tossing his catnip mouse around. Tigger was brought to us because his owner passed away and there was no one left to care for him. Please find it in your heart to make him a part of your family.

Please contact the Gloucester County Animal Shelter if you’d like to adopt him: (856) 881-2828 x 1.

Recognizing Our First Responders

Over the past few weeks, the Gloucester County First Responder community has been very busy with training and educational events. The Gloucester County Fire Chiefs Association and Gloucester County Emergency Response Center co-hosted their 2019 Leadership Symposium, and firefighters from across the county and region were able to learn more about new technology, best practices, and other continuing education topics relating to their service as firefighters.

Gloucester County also recently co hosted the annual EMS Clinical Education Symposium with Rowan University where 350 pre-hospital medical providers came out to learn from over 20 physicians about a wide range of topics. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about everything from how to treat patients using newly emerging medications all the way to a case study about EMS services overseas. Experts from many hospitals and disciplines come to this symposium and all of the physicians and other subject matter experts freely offer their time and expertise to the attendees of this highly regarded program.

Events like the EMS Clinical Education Symposium show the kind of synergy that can come from first responder organizations working together. Firefighters were able to get to know and learn alongside fellow firefighters from other communities, and EMTs now know the latest information so they can be on the same page as the doctors at the hospitals they are bringing patients to. Bringing people together and sharing this knowledge benefits everyone involved and will improve the quality of the services they provide. Most importantly, by having the most up to date technology and education we are ensuring that our first responders can do their best and come home safely to their families at the end of the day.
