At the invitation of Bergen County Freeholder Tracy Silna Zur, The Valley Hospital's Director of Emergency Services, Lafe Bush, recently presented commendations for their heroic actions and extraordinary teamwork in saving Anthony’s life.
“The five of you did a fabulous job in responding quickly and appropriately to Anthony’s medical emergency,” Lafe Bush said. “Without your actions and the availability of an AED at the school we would not be here celebrating today.”
