In recognition of National EMS Week and National Hospital Week, the EMS Department of Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center (MHMC) was recognized on May 13 by Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli and the Secaucus Town Council for its ongoing service to Secaucus and its residents.
The EMS Department was recognized with a plaque that read:
“Recognition Award presented to Meadowlands Hospital EMS with appreciation for your bravery, dedication, commitment and reliability to the residents of Secaucus. By your professional excellence and exceptional response time, you are truly life savers.”
As the primary EMS provider for Secaucus, Meadowlands EMS has two ambulances dedicated to serving the town. One ambulance is stationed at the hospital, while the second is stationed at the Secaucus Office of Emergency Management (OEM) location in the center of town. Each ambulance, staffed by two certified EMTs, can respond to any location in town in less than eight minutes (with a recent average response of five minutes). Meadowlands EMS also provides stand-by service at Secaucus events, and offers mutual aid to other communities when needed.
