On Thursday, Students at the South Mountain Annex got a first hand look at how first aid is administered in South Orange. Dan Cohen and Scott Egelberg, members of the South Orange Rescue Squad, came down to show Mrs. Buonocore's first grade class the innerworkings of the ambulance and how they do their job.
