NEWARK, NJ - Ever wonder what would happen if someone on the NJ Chamber's Walk to Washington train ride had a medical emergency? Well thanks to the generosity of Atlantic Mobile Health Care, there is no need for concern.
Altantic Mobile Health Care had four paramedics/EMTs riding the train last week when it took off from Newark's Penn station. The four Atlantic Health Care employees on board the train were Anthony Maccario, Jeff Goldstein, Richard Alexander and Richard Musso.
One may wonder if anyone has ever died on the train. That was the question asked of the paramedics later that evening at the dinner banquet.
"Actually one person did die a few years back. It wasn't a chaotic event. One older gentlemen just took a nap somewhere during the route and then never woke up", the paramedics discussed.
Other incidents have ranged from requests for band-aids to motion sickness to aches and pains. This year there weren't any alcohol related situations, most likely due to the newest restriction of prohibiting hard alcohol aboard the train ride.
The paramedics and EMTs from Altantic Mobile Health shared how much they loved being able to help with the medical logistics of the Chamber event. They were delighted to be of service. This is a true testament to the many accolades that Atlantic Health Care continuously receives about the happiness and satisfaction of its employees.
