Rahway Prevention Coalition Partners with Remax 1st Advantage

RAHWAY, NJ - The Rahway Prevention Coalition serves the City of Rahway by using different strategies such education, environmental changes, policy changes, trainings, media and social norms marketing campaigns, and advocacy to combat the threat of substance use and abuse.

Recently, the Rahway Prevention Coalition partnered with Remax 1st Advantage, which is owned and operated by broker Susan Bakes and located in Colonia, New Jersey. Her agents serve the surrounding area including Rahway and are extremely invested in this mission. Her agent Whitney Christow, organized the partnership to attain pill pods. Pill pods act as a security device to lock prescription pills of clients, who are showing their homes to potential buyers.

She explained that every agent is extremely vigilant and property viewers are followed everywhere in the house except for the restroom. Since most people leave their belongings in the house during open house viewings, prescription pills can sometimes be left in the medicine cabinet. By using this pill pod, which includes a unique combination to open the device, prescription drugs are safely stored for the house owner and are therefore secured from potential buyers or people viewing the property.
