Tower Rescue Training Credited With
Saving A Life
Emergency personnel in Hunterdon County are trained throughout the year for various skills, scenarios and situations. One of those classes, ‘Rescue From Tower Heights’ taught by Gary Breuer, has recently been credited with assisting a Vermont Firefighter with saving a young man.

Freeholder John E. Lanza, liaison to the Department of Public Safety said, “Proper instruction and training are critical in any emergency situation. In a moment of crisis, when saving lives and seconds matter, being able to act immediately reduces delays, keeps risk at a minimum and keeps rescue workers safe.

Gary Breuer not only instructs Hunterdon County rescue team members, but several other counties across the state have come to him for rescue classes. Each life saved is a credit to his thorough training and this County is lucky to have him.”

Raritan Township
The Hunterdon County Freeholders, on June 5 th , approved open space grants to the Delaware and Raritan (D&R) Greenway and Raritan Township, to go along with state Green Acres funds, preserving 42 acres on Plum Brook Road that are directly adjacent to 75 acres already preserved in the Township.

Freeholder John King, the Board’s liaison to the Planning and Land Use Department, stated, “Linking preserved open space parcels together to form a larger major preservation zone is the appropriate strategic use of open space funds.
