JERSEY CITY -- Jersey City Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, will use the anniversary of 9/11 to help prepare the community for treating wounds during an emergency. “On the 14th anniversary of this tragic event, Jersey City Medical Center will once again prepare the community for future disasters or emergency situations,” said Joseph Scott, president and CEO of Jersey City Medical Center. “Following the city’s memorial services, we will host a seminar for the people who live and work in our community to help prepare them for the possibility of any future natural or man-made disaster or a family emergency. We may not be able to predict an emergency, but proper planning and preparation can often make a difference should one occur.” This year’s program will provide critical information on managing wounds during times of disaster or personal emergency. The event will take place on Friday, Sept. 11 from 2 to 3 p.m. in 5 and 6 at the hospital, 355 Grand St., Jersey City. The event is sponsored by Quikclot. The free sessions will be presented by the hospital’s EMS and emergency medicine staff and the American College of Emergency Physicians. On Sept. 11, 2001, the hospital and Jersey City fire and police departments treated some 2,000 people injured at the World Trade Center. This was more than any other hospital in the New York City region. For more information on the event, call (201) 915-2218.
