Cooper Community Health Visits Haddon Fire Company No. 1

This morning, Cooper’s Community Health Department met with our local heroes at Haddon Fire Company No. 1 in Haddonfield, New Jersey, to give cardiovascular screenings and comprehensive risk assessments.

“As a former firefighter of Haddon Fire Company No. 1, I know how serious they are about their health and well being. Participating in the Helping the Heroes Program is one of the many factors that make Haddon Fire Company No. 1 one of the healthiest departments in Camden County.” -Mike Bortnowski, Program Assistant, Cooper’s Community Health.

Thank you to the Haddon Fire Company No. 1 team for all you do for our community!
