Ridgewood NJ, On Saturday September 3, 2017 Engine 35, staffed with 3 EMT certified Firefighters, was dispatched to a reported woman in labor. Upon arrival at the home approximately 4 minutes later, we had found that the baby had been delivered by the father prior to the arrival of emergency service personnel and the first arriving police officers and the duty EMT were tending to the mother and a healthy newborn.

The crew of Engine 35 assisted in this care until the arrival of Ridgewood EMS medical director Dr. Lahita, who assumed care and cut the umbilical cord prior to transport to the hospital. As part of our daily assignments and duties, one of our Firefighters rounded out the ambulance crew and continued on to the hospital with the second EMT. Both mother and child were doing well upon arriving at the hospital.

A child birth is a very happy occasion and the crew was very glad to be part of it. Local 47 wishes the family well!
