The unnamed Irvington FMBA Local 14 recruit was training at the Morris County Fire Academy when he collapsed, requiring CPR and other lifesaving efforts, the NJ State FMBA said.
The recruit was then transported to Morristown Medical Center, where he remains in the CCU, officials said.
“We are asking all members to keep our brothers and sisters of Irvington FMBA Local 14 in your thoughts and prayers,” the state FMBA said.
“We will send out any updates as soon as they are received on the status of the recruit.”
