Livingston Schools Ahead of the Curve With New CPR/AED State Law

When acting governor Kim Guadagno signed Assembly Bill No. 2072 into law, requiring high schools to provide students with hands-on training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) last Wednesday, there was no worry on the part of Livingston staff and administration. While some districts scramble to comply with the new law, Livingston is ahead of the curve.

Another Way to Save Lives

Speaking of saving lives, on August 25, the Livingston Public Library sponsored its semi-annual blood drive in conjunction with the Blood Center of New Jersey. The drive was held in an effort to meet the community’s increasing need for blood, as the Center is operating on a one-day supply. All types are needed. Did you know that each unit of blood donated is broken down into components including platelets, plasma and red cells? Did you know that a single donation can help save the lives of up to three people? Did you know that 16-year-olds, with parental/ guardian consent, can donate blood in the state of New Jersey?

Teaching "Life" Skills

Algebra, chemistry, physics – when it comes to many class requirements, high school students are often at a loss as to why they have to learn certain things. One course that needs no explanation, however, is the CPR and AED training that Livingston High School students receive as part of the 11th grade health curriculum. Although Livingston has taught students CPR and first aid for years, recently passed legislation now requires CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automated external defibrillator) training as part of the state's high school health education curriculum.

Council Bans E-Cigarettes in Public Places; Seeks New Water and Sewer Connection Fees

The Livingston Township Council enacted ordinances governing electronic cigarettes and sanitary sewers on Monday evening. Amending a current ordinance prohibiting smoking in township facilities, the first ordinance adds electronic cigarettes to the ban. The ordinance additionally prohibits the use of "electronic smoking devices" in all government buildings or on any township property located within 500 feet of any elementary or secondary educational institution. The amended ordinance also expands prohibited areas to include all outdoor public parks and recreational areas that are owned, leased, or used by the township. Councilman Rudy Fernandez noted that the ordinance will stay relevant as the town's open space expands now and in the future.

Leave a Little Extra Travel Time

It seems like everywhere you go these days, the roads are being torn up and traffic is snarled. Major highways are sometimes closed with traffic detoured miles out of the way. The Route 10 traffic pattern seems to change daily as the state works on replacing the bridge over the Passaic River; a plethora of local streets have been closed for re-paving, new curbing, or reconstruction; and now, a section of JFK Parkway in Livingston is about to be closed to traffic for roadwork. We have not been given any estimation of how long that will take; but, it certainly will snarl traffic.
