On Monday, March 12th, at around 7:30 p.m. Hammonton firefighter John Warren Jr., was escorted back to the fire station by his fellow firefighters after being released from the Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation, where he was receiving treatment.

Last month, the 70-year-old was providing water-supply assistance at a fire when he began having a major heart attack.

His fellow crew members found him unresponsive and immediately began CPR until he was transported to a nearby hospital.

Hammonton Fire Department officials say Warren still has some recovering to do, but they are optimistic he will make a full recovery and continue to serve his community.
