"Let's make Salem County the 'kindest' County in New Jersey" Campaign...

Jay Daniels, employee in the Engineer's Department, was traveling to a job site and was one of the first few people passing a bus accident. Without hesitation he stopped to make sure everyone was okay. The bus was transporting elementary students. His skills as a volunteer EMS and CERT member came in handy! He noticed one young boy needed to be kept alert until the ambulance arrived. What did he do? Jay talked to the boy to keep the him occupied because Jay knew the importance of keeping him alert to help from losing consciousness.

Jay Daniels, thank you for your act of kindness at the scene, volunteering many years as a Volunteer EMS and CERT responder! A great reminder, we all can stop at a scene, even to just talk with someone until help arrives.
