People are motivated to join the Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad for a variety of reasons.

Most volunteers say it is because of the deep satisfaction that comes from helping people in need. Others join for the excitement of doing something out of the ordinary. Not everyone can say they have saved a life, splinted a broken bone, used “the jaws of life,” or rappelled down an elevator shaft. While calls this dramatic do not happen every day, they do happen. Our high school and college student members find it is a great way to complement their pre-medical education, or even to help them decide which path to pursue.

To learn about becoming a volunteer, attend an information session or contact us using the form below.  Information sessions are held at 6:30 PM every 3rd Monday of the month at Squad headquarters.  Registration is not required but attendance at one is mandatory for your application to be considered. Additional inquires can be submitted using the form below.

Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

Works on a team to respond to 9-1-1 emergency medical calls. EMT crews provide immediate care to the sick and injured, and transport patients safely by ambulance to area hospitals.


Rescue Associate

Trained to operate in a variety of rescue disciplines to save people from life-threatening and hazardous conditions. Training includes motor vehicle extrications, ice/water rescues, and technical rope rescues.


Ambulance Driver

An emergency vehicle operator (EVO) drives the ambulance to the emergency call. An EVO does not necessarily need to be an emergency medical technician. He or she serves as an integral member of the EMT crew.



Our youngest volunteers, ages 16 and 17, undergo EMT training and serve on crews in anticipation of becoming full-duty members at age 18.


EMS Associate

Must have significant EMS experience and be available to contribute to Princeton operations on occasion.  Associates must ensure that their skills and certifications are up-to-date.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your response to our car crash on Monday. Your care and professionalism are second to none, and we are blessed to have you in Princeton.
