Mother Delivers Healthy Baby Girl with Help from BHVRS

On March 10 Angela Windt went into labor two weeks early. She realized her contractions were progressing too quickly and she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital.

Thanks to the quick response of the Berkeley Heights Volunteer Rescue Squad and three Berkeley Heights police officers, there were no complications with the home delivery. The Friday Night Crew, Andy Damato, Joe Plocinski, Nicole Segalini and Chief Sam Lloyd ensured that the delivery went smoothly and Ava was born at 9:42 p.m weighing 6 pounds 10 ounces and 20 inches long.

This is the first birth for the Berkeley Heights Volunteer Rescue Squad in over 20 years.
