U.S. Coast Guard Announces WASHINGTON - Operators of recreational vessels less than 26 feet in length will be required to use an engine cut-off switch (ECOS) and associated ECOS link (ECOSL) as of April 1, 2021, as the U.S. Coast Guard implements a law passed by Congress. The ECOS and ECOSL prevent runaway vessels and the threats they pose. The ECOSL attaches the vessel operator to a switch that shuts off the engine if the operator is displaced from the helm.

(MARLTON, N.J.) After a year spent mostly at home with limited in-person social interaction, a visit to a bustling, unfamiliar vaccine clinic can be a bit overwhelming, especially for those with special needs.

The goal is to ensure a stress-free experience for both special guests and the people who care for them. “Just as we have wheelchairs available for those with physical limitations, we felt it important to create a welcoming environment that considers the needs of individuals who are easily overstimulated by bright, busy spaces,” said Phyllis Worrell, emergency preparedness coordinator for Virtua Health. The sensory rooms are conveniently located,... Read more →


FOREST FIRE PREVENTION MEASURES UNDER WAY ACROSS NEW JERSEY

TRENTON – Active forest fire prevention protects lives, property, and the health of New Jersey’s forests and natural resources. To reduce dense undergrowth and other forest debris that have the potential to fuel wildfires this spring, the Department of Environmental Protection’s Forest Fire Service is conducting prescribed burns throughout the state, Acting Commissioner Shawn LaTourette announced.
