Bergen County emergency response program graduates 150 Muslim volunteers
by Allison Pries
A county emergency response program graduated its latest class of trainees Saturday, the second in an effort by officials to recruit members of faith-based organizations for the volunteer effort.
About 150 young adults from three mosques in North Jersey collected certificates for completing basic training in the Community Emergency Response Team program. The participants belong to Nida-ul-Islam and Dar-ul-Islah, both in Teaneck, and the Islamic Center of Passaic County, in Paterson.
Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan and Freeholder Maura DeNicola both attended the ceremony, held at the Bergen County Law and Public Safety Complex.
