This Day In History: 1951-03-08
Because of the heavy demand for first aid training applicants were being screened by the Civil Defense Council, with preference being given to Ambulance Corps drivers, firemen and policemen. The fact that Mahwah had only two active first aid instructors limited the numbers drastically. A standard class of 20 was being taught in Fardale while 24 in Mahwah were completing the advanced course. Another class of 24 was scheduled to begin in Fardale, while 24 from the American Brake Shoe Corporation was to begin on March 27th.
