5/21-27/17 National EMS Week

This year’s EMS Week (May 21-27) theme, “Always in service,” perfectly describes New Jersey’s volunteer EMTs. No matter the emergency, weather, time of day or night, they are out there giving freely of their time and effort. They continually train to improve their skills, volunteer in community events and provide emotional support to patients and their families. They dedicate countless hours maintaining their buildings and equipment, providing community education and raising funds for their organizations.

Despite the missed holidays and family gatherings, and the dangers they sometimes face when answering calls, our EMS volunteers ask nothing in return except respect.

Dumont’s EMS volunteers are your friends and neighbors. Please support and thank them for all they do. Perhaps even consider joining their proud ranks.

Dumont Cracked The Top 250!

Dumont ranked #193 in LendEDU’s new report ranking the best towns in New Jersey to find a deli.

LendEDU is based in Hoboken, New Jersey, and we realize how important it is to be surrounded by good delis. We thought it would be a cool idea to rank New Jersey towns according to how many delis they had per person, so we did it. And, Dumont cracked the top 250!

Using licensed data, LendEDU was able to find the exact number of delis and sandwich shops that existed in every town in New Jersey. We divided that number by the population of the town and the resulting number was LendEDU’s Deli Density Index.

The full report and methodology can be found here: https://lendedu.com/blog/ranking-new-jersey-towns-deli-density-index/

I encourage you to share Dumont’s recognition with the community through your website and social media. I have a feeling fellow New Jerseyans are going to take some pride in this.
