NEW PROVIDENCE – Susan Crum, a member of the borough’s volunteer rescue squad, was honored with an Overlook Medical Center EMT Excellence Award.

According to Department Captain Patti Muench, after joining the squad about two years ago, Crum enrolled in an EMT course and “passed with flying colors.” Described by one of her teachers as a student who “made it easy to instruct,” Crum wasted no time in putting her knowledge to the test

“She shows excellent patient assessment skills, which always results in wonderful patient care,” Muench said. “She exhibits professionalism on all calls, and treats her patients the way she would want her family treated, with respect and caring attitude. Whenever we need someone to fill in the schedule, she is there to help, in whatever capacity requested.”
