Press Room » Local Firefighters Receive Lifesaving Equipment $7,871 Donation Strengthens Emergency Response

08/21/2015 at 05:00 PM


BELMAR, NJ (August 25, 2015) – Residents and Breitling Replica Watches firefighters of Belmar will be safer 

thanks to a grant awarded by Capacity Coverage Company of New Jersey, Inc. (a 

subsidiary of The Capacity Group of Companies) and Fireman’s Fund Insurance 

Company.  The $7,871 grant allows the Belmar Fire Department to purchase an 

Automated External Defibrillator and essential first aid equipment.


In the United States, each year approximately 424,000 people of all ages experience an 

out of hospital non-traumatic Sudden Cardiac Arrest and only one out of ten will 

survive. Recent studies have shown that administering high quality, effective CPR and 

the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) within two minutes of a Sudden 

Cardiac Arrest can produce survival rates as high as 80 percent.  With cardiac arrest 

also being the leading cause of firefighter deaths in the United States, the purchase of 

these new devices will keep both community members and firefighters safer.

“It is critically important that as first responders, we have the proper equipment needed 

to save victims in any situation,” said Fire Chief George Burr. “We are extremely 

grateful to Capacity Coverage Company of New Jersey, Inc. and Fireman’s Fund for this 

grant.  This truly enables us to provide an increased level of service to the community 

and safety for our firefighters.”

Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, City Council members, Fire Department officials, 

firefighters, and executives from Capacity Coverage Company of New Jersey, Inc. and 

Fireman’s Fund will come together for this special grant presentation:
