Janet Zilinski Memorial Foundation Donates AED's to Warren Township Recreation Commission

WARREN, NJ - Karen and Jim Zilinski from The Janet Zilinski Memorial Fund presented six Automated External Defibrillators (AED) and seven outdoor cabinets to Warren Township (the total value $11,800) to be stationed at the athletic fields and tennis courts at the November Recreation Commission meeting.

This donation is to replace and add AEDs donated by the Janet Zilinski Memorial Fund (The Janet Fund) previously in 2006.

 

In 2006 Warren Township Recreation Commission's J.A.N.E.T. Policy (Janet's Always Near Emergency Treatment) was adopted. This was the first one in the country.  Each township youth sports organization recognized by the Recreation Commission wishing to utilize Township of Warren athletic facilities is required to assign a "Safety Coordinator" for its organization and require at least one coach be certified in CPR for each team. Warren Township's J.A.N.E.T policy has been adopted by various towns throughout New Jersey.

Since September 1, 2014, Janet's Law went into effect for all New Jersey public school and private schools that provide instruction to students in grades kindergarten through 12. Each school must have at least one AED in an accessible location and have a minimum of 5 trained responders in both the use of the AED and CPR. In 2006, Warren Township Recreation was the first in the state of New Jersey to have AEDs on its athletic fields thanks to the generous donations from the Janet Fund.
