A&M Attends Complete Care’s First Responder Barbecue: A Day of Food, Fun, and Community in Fair Lawn, NJ

There's something unique and uplifting about community events, particularly when they honor the heroes who work tirelessly behind the scenes, ensuring our safety and health. Recently, Complete Care in Fairlawn, NJ, decided to give back and recognize these unsung heroes by hosting a First Responder Barbecue. Our medical transportation team was honored to be among those invited and to say that the experience was heartwarming would be an understatement.

Building Bridges through Barbecue

When Complete Care at Fair Lawn Edge extended the invitation, it was clear that this was more than just an event; it was an appreciation gesture for first responders. The core of the barbecue was about recognizing the countless hours, unwavering dedication, and relentless passion that first responders, including our EMS team, bring every day. The warmth, laughter, and camaraderie at the event were palpable, as different teams from the area congregated in a relaxed setting.

Sizzling Delights and Chilled Treats

No barbecue is complete without a delectable spread of food. The air was filled with the aroma of grilling, with the wafting scent of marinated meats and veggies making mouths water even before reaching the food stations. Our team indulged in a variety of dishes, all masterfully prepared and cooked to perfection.

The warm day was counterbalanced with a delightful selection of chilled beverages. The assortment of sodas provided the much-needed fizz, while the popsicles were an absolute hit, offering a sweet and chilly respite. The snacks added that extra touch to the picnic vibes, ensuring that no one went hungry or thirsty.

Bonding Beyond the Sirens and Calls

Away from the usual hustle and bustle, the event provided a golden opportunity for our EMS team to bond with their peers. Exchanging stories, laughing over shared experiences, and simply taking a moment to enjoy the sun and the open space provided a refreshing break from the demands of the job.

Furthermore, it was an occasion for us to interact more closely with the community we serve. Engaging in light-hearted conversations and answering questions about our work made us realize the importance of such gatherings in bridging gaps and fostering understanding.

Gratitude in Every Bite

While the food was great, the highlight was the palpable sense of gratitude that emanated from everyone present. The teams at Complete Care at Fair Lawn Ridge went out of their way to ensure that every attendee felt valued and appreciated. Their meticulous planning, from the selection and abundance of food to the seating arrangements, showed their deep respect for the first responder community.

As the day drew to a close and the sun cast long shadows, there was a sense of contentment and a promise of more such gatherings in the future. This First Responder Barbecue was a testament to the community spirit of Fair Lawn, NJ, and a reminder of the essential role each responder plays in keeping the community safe and healthy.


Events like the First Responder Barbecue are essential for nurturing bonds, showing appreciation, and reminding first responders of the love and respect they command in the community. A big thank you to Complete Care at Fair Lawn Ridge for orchestrating such a memorable day!
