We regret to advise you of the Line of Duty Death this morning of Bruce Mandel, longtime Captain of the Maplewood First Aid Squad. The Captain had just taken a patient to St. Barnabas Hospital and was returning to quarters in Maplewood when he did not feel well. He stopped at the Maplewood FD for assistance around 0800 Hours. The MFD personnel encouraged the Captain to seek medical attention ...and he did- and was transported by the MFD ambulance where he coded enroute and eventually was pronounced.
Services for Captain Mandel will be held tomorrow, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at Menorah Chapels, 2950 Vaux Hall Road, Vaux Hall, New Jersey (across from Millburn Mall) beginning at 1130 hours. Family will be receiving friends and their condolences beginning at 10:45 a.m. Our sincere condolences. HERE is the Maplewood First Aid Squad Website: http://maplewoodfirstaid.org/
