DEMAREST, N.J. -- Demarest's mayor and council recognized members of the Demarest Volunteer Ambulance Corps on Monday evening for their response to a multiple-injury car accident in May.

Ambulance 426 responded to a May 17 accident in Closter, with a crew of Chief Joseph Fortunato III, driver/EMR Robert Schiraldi, EMT Maria Selle and EMT Chris Cardaci. All the injured parties were transported to HackensackUMC, and the corps removed one of the victims from the car and provided basic life support, including cervical spine precautions.

Hackensack Hospital had also recognized the crew for these efforts, the corps noted in a Tuesday Facebook post. "Job well done by our members. Thank you for your service to the community."
