  1. Attending Physician
    I have just received notification that there was a Line of Duty Death
    in Old Bridge Twp. this evening.

    Jim Dodridge, EMT with Old Bridge First Aid Squad (Red & White), was
    struck by a vehicle at high speed while attending to a victim of a
    pedestrian vs. auto incident._ EMT Dodridge subsequently died.

    Details on funeral arrangements are forthcoming._ It is rare for a
    member of the EMS family to die in the line of duty, and our deepest
    sympathies go out to the family of Jim and the Rescue Squad.

      This totally sucks. We had 2 medics from my area killed about 18 months ago the same way. It was a horrible thing, and there's just no way to make it better.

      My sympathies for his family and fellow medics and other emergency services. Rest in peace.
