29 Sep Princeton University donates $500,000 to help fund construction of a new Squad headquarters
Princeton University has donated $500,000 to help fund construction of a new headquarters building for the Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad. The nonprofit, volunteer-led organization provides emergency medical and rescue services to the Princeton community. Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad has been operating out of the same building on North Harrison Street since 1963 and is working toward building a new headquarters at the corner of Route 206 and Valley Road. In addition to the University’s support for Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad, Princeton students, faculty, staff and alumni serve as fully trained volunteer emergency medical technicians each year with the squad.
