This week our Firefighter/EMTs are training on Water Rescue Operations and Near Drowning Medical Procedures for the water hazards in our area. The Southern border of Westampton Township has approximately 4 miles of waterfront along the Rancocas Creek, a tidal waterway which is frequently used by kayakers, motorboats, jet skis, and swimmers. We also have 26 ponds, several hundred residential swimming pools, one swim club, a handful of Motel pools in Westampton. Today after a PowerPoint Presentation, we practiced throwing our Rescue Rope Throw Bags, floatation slings, and removing a patient with a suspected spinal injury from the water. ... See MoreSee Less

JEFFREY POMPEO, ESQ. PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE IN THE JERSEY INSIDER ENTITLED: “ARE YOU AWARE OF NEW JERSEY’S ‘MOVE OVER’ LAW?”
In 2009 New Jersey enacted a law aimed at reducing death or injuries to roadside emergency workers such as police officers, ambulance drivers and tow truck operators. Upon seeing an emergency vehicle on the side of the road, what are your responsibilities as the operator of a motor vehicle? DRIVER RESPONSIBILITIES The law requires a driver approaching a stationary emergency vehicle with flashing, blinking or alternating red or blue lights to do so cautiously and, if possible based on the existing safety and traffic conditions, “make a lane change into a lane not adjacent to the . . . emergency vehicle.”
If a lane change is impossible, prohibited by law or unsafe, drivers are required to reduce their speed below the posted speed limit and be prepared to stop.
The law covers an “authorized emergency vehicle“ which is any vehicle operated by the fire department, police department and ambulance services responding to an emergency call.
TOW TRUCKS New Jersey is one of thirty states that requires drivers to also change lanes or reduce speed for parked tow trucks with flashing amber lights and highway maintenance or emergency service vehicles with flashing yellow, amber or red lights. A tow truck is any vehicle equipped with a sling or tilted bed designed to tow or recover vehicles.
VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW A driver found guilty of violating New Jersey’s “Move Over“ law faces a punishment of $100 to $500.
SUMMARY If you are driving in the slow lane of a three lane highway, for example, and are approaching a police or fire department vehicle, ambulance, tow truck, highway maintenance or emergency service vehicle parked on the right shoulder with flashing, blinking or alternating lights, you are required by New Jersey law to move into the middle lane and, if it is impossible or unsafe to do so, to reduce your speed and be prepared to stop. The same is true if you are driving in the fast lane of a three lane highway and are approaching such vehicles parked on the left shoulder.
Like many motor vehicle laws, New Jersey’s Move Over law is designed to save lives and prevent injuries. The life you save or injury you prevent might be your own. ... See MoreSee Less
