As part of National EMS Week, which is designated as the week of May 20 – 26, City Hall will become the first Heart Safe municipal building in Jersey City. In addition to the AED on the first floor of City Hall, three AEDs, donated by the Jersey City Medical Center, will be installed on the other floors.
“The Jersey City Medical Center’s EMS department has been instrumental in seeing that City Hall be designated as a Heart Safe building,” said Mayor Healy. “We are grateful for their donation of three AEDs and for conducting the Heart Saver / AED class for the staff at City Hall. There is nothing more important than guarding the safety and health of everyone that visits or works here.”
