After 15 years of planning and fundraising, the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad (PFARS) broke ground Friday, November 30, for its new headquarters on a site bordered by Valley Road, Witherspoon Street, Route 206, and Cherry Hill Road. The land was formerly home to the Princeton Township Public Works facility.
“Today marks the bridge between our past and our future,” said Mark Freda, president of the 78-year-old nonprofit that long ago outgrew its headquarters on Harrison Street. Addressing a crowd of community members, elected officials, and PFARS volunteers past and present, Freda recalled the decision “to solve the problem of our too small, too tight, too old building.”
