To the Editor:
On Friday, July 9, there was an unexpected emergency 911 simply call regarding a feasible person in distress in the drinking water off the beach at 76th Road in Harvey Cedars. Our household is oceanside on 76th Avenue, and we watched from our yard as the emergency contact unfolded.
I am creating due to the fact of the unbelievable and incredibly impressive reaction that was built by both equally volunteer and skilled crisis responders. Inside of 10 minutes of the first emergency car or truck arriving on the scene, the whole road, from seashore to Boulevard, was stuffed with unexpected emergency response cars. The emergency reaction provided Harvey Cedars police motor vehicles, a Barnegat Gentle fire truck, quite a few unexpected emergency clinical motor vehicles, the Barnegat Light Ice and Drinking water Rescue Crew with a Jet Ski and the cars and trucks of 1st responders arriving on the scene. All of the responders sprinted to the ocean to support in the rescue. On the other hand, it turned out there was no person in distress.
As a witness to this amazing reaction, I know how lucky we are on this Island to have these outstanding initial responders supporting our community. It is truly outstanding. I would like to thank all of our 1st responders for the get the job done they do to preserve us safe.
