At the May 21 Borough Council meeting, Councilman Joseph Irace, Chairman of the Public Safety Committee, presented certificates of recognition to Capt. John Connor, 1st Lt. Jeremy Dalton and 2nd Lt. Ryan Kondracki of the First Aid Squad for a rescue which took place on Mother’s Day. The three were returning from a shared service call in Little Silver when they noticed someone on the tracks, unconscious. “They rescued the person and transported him to the hospital, thereby probably saving somebody’s life,” Irace said. Connor said that it was an intense situation. Dalton thought he saw someone on the tracks, and they got out to investigate. “The train was coming,” he said. “They were blowing the whistle. That’s 20 seconds to get to the train station.” “If we were 30 seconds later…” Connor said. He said that Dalton’s sharp eye was the reason that the man was okay today. In related news, during the same meeting Mayor Michael Mahon issued a proclamation recognizing May 17-23 as Emergency Medical Service Week in the borough.
