Don’t Gamble with Halloween Safety: 5 Tips to Protect Trick or Treaters

Suspect poisoning? Call NJ Poison Control: 800.222.1222

Westfield and surrounding NJ communities love Halloween and its trick-or-treaters. And, we don’t want innocent Halloween fun to turn into a disaster. “Taking simple precautions can go a long way in keeping families safe,” says Steven Marcus, MD, executive and medical director of the New Jersey Poison Information and Education System (NJPIES), a division of the Department of Emergency Medicine of the New Jersey Medical School of Rutgers University.

“Being prepared and informed about how to avoid a poisoning or how to handle a possible poisoning can ensure a positive outcome,” Marcus says. “Parents often call 9-1-1 or spend hours in the emergency room when they could have called our poison experts for immediate medical advice. If you suspect a poisoning, don’t take chances by waiting until symptoms occur or relying on family members or internet searches when you might need immediate help. Give the Poison Helpline a call first, call 1.800.222.1222 to reach an expert!” [Read more…]

SBA & Congressman Lance Tour Westfield Businesses

Susan Devaney Joins SBA and Congressman Lance in Tour of Westfield NJ Business DistrictOn Monday, August 10, Susan Devaney had the pleasure of joining Congressman Leonard Lance, Westfield Mayor Andrew Skibitsky, Fanwood Mayor Collen Mahr, Gene Jannotti, the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Regional Administrator Kellie LeDet on a walking tour of the Westfield Business District.

The goal of the tour was to promote the availability of business counseling, loans, and technical assistance to local merchants through the SBA and other local economic development agencies.

Small businesses lending in New Jersey continues to stay ahead of last year’s pace. During the first 10 months of Fiscal Year 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014 thru July 31, 2015) the U.S. Small Business Administration’s New Jersey district office has approved a total of 1,456 loans for $688 million. The SBA reports a 35 percent increase in the number of loans approved and a 34 percent increase in the dollars made available to small business owners throughout the state during that time.

Since 2010 through July of this year, the SBA has approved a total of 25 loans for $10.3 million to Westfield small businesses. “SBA has approved an average of four loans for $1.7 million per year over the last five years in Westfield,” said SBA Regional Administrator Kellie LeDet.” I believe the capacity exists to do more. Part of the reason why we are here today with Congressman Lance and Westfield Mayor Andrew Skibitsky, is to see how we can work  together to boost those totals and have a greater impact on an already thriving downtown business district. If there is way the SBA can help, then we want to be part of the solution.”
