Dear South River Borough,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.

I am requesting South River Police Department Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) records for the following:

All EMS calls which occurred from June 1st, 2016 to August 31st, 2016 between the hours of 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM, the hours which were primarily covered by ambulance crews solely comprised of South River Rescue Squad volunteer members.

The CAD records are requested to contain the following information, at a minimum:

1. Date, time and location of each call

2. The EMS unit number which eventually responded to the call

3. The in service times and on scene arrival times for the units mentioned in item #2

4. Any notes entered by the dispatcher, specifically those referencing additional alarms needed due to lack of response or manpower from South River Rescue Squad and those referencing mutual aid requests to other towns or agencies

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Donald Clark

Bill Bray, South River Borough
