New Jersey Information

The peninsula of New Jersey is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware River and Delaware Bay. The fourth-smallest state but the most densely populated, New Jersey is home to an estimated 8.9 million people and is the second-wealthiest state based on per capita income. Settled originally by Dutch and Swedish immigrants, New Jersey was eventually seized by the English. Factories in the state helped to drive the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century. A center for war production – especially naval construction – during both world wars, today the economy of New Jersey is multifaceted and includes the pharmaceutical, financial and telecommunications industries, publishing, agriculture, tourism, gambling and chemical development.

The leading health indicators in New Jersey are primary care access, infant deaths, immunization status, coronary heart disease, and adult and adolescent obesity, according to the New Jersey State Health Assessment Data report. Although the goal of reducing deaths from heart disease from 140.1 to 112.1 per 100,000 people was met in 2014, obesity remains a problem. Of adults aged 20 or older, 23.8 were obese in 2011. Obesity and smoking are a combination that increases heart disease risks. Heart disease is enough of a problem that in 2014, the state of New Jersey mandated CPR classes in high school. Laurie Heavener owes her life to CPR performed by a high school sophomore who resuscitated her when she collapsed from cardiac arrest. Heavener was there when the bill was signed into law and noted that CPR/AED can save lives.


Newark is a major air, shipping and rail hub, with an estimated population of 281,944. Located approximately 8 miles west of Manhattan, the city is located at the mouth of the Passiac River. Port Newark-Elizabeth is the busiest seaport on the American East Coast and the primary shipping container terminal. The city is the largest employment center in the state, with jobs in finance, healthcare, import/export, insurance and government. The University Hospital Community Health Needs Assessment of 2014 noted heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death. Smoking and obesity are also major health issues. Our ACLS/PALS and BLS courses will prepare you to provide care to those who suffer from heart problems. When Jim Abbott suffered a heart attack in his yard in Newark, a neighbor performed CPR until the paramedics arrived and were able to use an AED; Abbott survived.

Jersey City

The largest city as well as the county seat of Hudson County, Jersey City boasted population growth of 6.7 percent between 2010 and 2016, with a current estimated population of 264,152. Considered to be part of the New York metropolitan area, Jersey City is a port of entry bordered on the west by the Hackensack River and Newark Bay, and on the east by the Hudson River and Upper New York Bay.

It is one of the largest centers of banking and finance in the US with the Jersey City waterfront being nicknamed “Wall Street West.” The city was a dock and manufacturing town for most of the 19th and 20th centuries and is still an important transportation terminus, distribution and manufacturing center.

The 2016 Jersey City Medical Center Community Health Assessment reported 65 percent of its service area residents suffered from one or more of the following conditions in 2016: stroke, heart disease, weight disorders, hypertension, high cholesterol or hearing disorders. Volunteer Susan Paul and a bystander trained in CPR used an AED during a cardiac arrest at the Goldman Sachs building in June of 2017. Like Paul, you can become ready to provide care to Jersey City residents by completing our online ACLS/PALS/BLS classes.


New Jersey’s third most-populous city, with an estimated population of 147,754 in 2015, Paterson is known as the “Silk City.” Its dominant role in the silk trade during the latter half of the 19th century, however, has given way to a stagnant economy, made worse by damage from Hurricane Irene in 2011. The city is a major destination for immigrants from the Arab and Muslim world as well as for Hispanics. The New Jersey Health Collaborative Community Health Needs Assessment identified access to health care, caregiver health, heroin addiction, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases as the primary health issues in the area in 2016. Facilities supervisor Alejandro Torres used his training as a state-certified EMT to save the life of School 11 principal Carlos Ortiz by performing CPR and using the AED when Ortiz suffered a heart attack. Like Torres, you will be prepared to save lives after completing our online ACLS/PALS/BLS courses.


Elizabeth, named one of America’s Greenest Cities by Popular Science in 2008, is the county seat of Union County, with an estimated population of 129,007 in 2015. Air and sea transportation, the Jersey Gardens outlet mall, Loews Theater and the Elizabeth Center are major revenue generators. The Bayway refinery is also located in Elizabeth. The primary health issues of the area, according to the New Jersey Health Collaborative Community Health Needs Assessment in 2016, are: diabetes, access to mental health services, health literacy, obesity and heart disease. Elizabeth was recently in the news for successfully training five people with developmental disabilities to perform CPR.


Originally incorporated as Raritan Township in 1870, Edison is currently home to an estimated 102,701 people. The town’s name was changed in 1954 to honor inventor Thomas Edison, whose main laboratory was located in Menlo Park. Ranked as one of “America’s 10 Best Places to Grow Up” by US News & World Report in 2009, the area has low crime rates, strong schools, green spaces and many recreational activities. The Raritan Bay Medical Center Community Health Needs Assessment of 2014 noted that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the area. In a reverse of patterns common to most states, whites had a higher mortality rate than blacks. Cancer is the second leading cause of death. However, asthma prevalence is lower than for the rest of the state and obesity rates have declined to 21.4 percent of adults. On October 25, 2016, Officer Brian Freund of the Edison police force performed CPR on six-day-old Jivya Gundimada, saving her life.
