The Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad is an independent, non-profit organization that relies on charitable contributions to help meet its annual operating expenses.

On average, we respond to emergency calls 8 times per day – from car crashes and fire emergencies, to weather-related incidents, personal health crises like heart attacks and strokes, accidents at homes, schools, sporting events and more.

We are prepared to save, and proud to serve. But we can’t do it without your support.

Every time one of our ambulances goes out on an emergency call, it costs the Squad about $500, and we do not receive funding from any government agencies or health care facilities.

We respond to nearly 3,000 calls per year and, on average, our response time is under 6 minutes from dispatch to on-scene!

We need your help to purchase the special life-saving equipment our EMTs need to serve you, including:

  • Ambulance and rescue vehicles
  • Medical devices, such as Automatic External Defibrillators (AED)
  • First aid supplies (oxygen tanks, bandages, splints)
  • Rescue equipment, tools, and training
  • Radios and paging devices
