12 Dec: Vitale Resolution To Study Emergency Medical Services In NJ Approved

TRENTON – A resolution sponsored by Senator Joseph F. Vitale which would provide for an independent study of New Jersey’s Emergency Medical Services was unanimously approved today by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.

“Our EMS system in New Jersey is absolutely vital to the continued health and well-being of the State,” said Senator Vitale, D-Middlesex, the Chairman of the Senate Health Committee. “The moments after the onset of severe medical trauma are crucial to the survival of the patient, and rapid and high-quality response is a must to improve the survival rate of what would otherwise be fatal illnesses. We should constantly be reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of our EMS, to know how to provide the best possible emergency response to medical crises in the Garden State.”
