Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Emergency Services Volunteers were well prepared for the 44th Annual Ridgewood Memorial Day Run Activities.  “The culmination of all the hours planning that is involved for activities rests with the weather”,stated Acting Chief Ryan Savaria. “If the weather cooperates with near perfect running conditions, our job is much easier on Run Day” added Savaria. As you ran the route, Emergency Services Volunteers and their equipment were stationed strategically to quick response. At the finish line, there was a huge cadre of responders in their safety vests awaiting the runners. A fully staffed Treatment Tent was established and staffed with the volunteer EMTs and Paramedics.  Thanks to all the Ridgewood Volunteers for being well prepared. A large team of mutual aid agencies were on standby at the Run as well to assist.

Reader recalls the Reign of Terror in Ridgewood

” we remember when 100’s of us showed up to a council meeting to speak out against the density changes in the CBD. Almost everyone was in favor of a compromise: an increase from 12 units per acre to 24 not 35 which Albert, Paul and Gwen voted 3 -2 to approve. All the issues mentioned in the blog posts were addressed and one that wasn’t addressed was an increase in sludge output that would tax our crumbling infrastructure. Nothing was going to change the 3 -2 vote. Whatever problems you see today are the result of that vote and the permanent damage done during the reign of terror. “
