Yesterday, our team at Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad (PFARS) responded swiftly to a fire in Hopewell, demonstrating once again the courage and commitment that define our community’s emergency services.

In the midst of the chaos, one unsung hero played a vital role – our Rehab Truck. 🚑💨

But what exactly does the Rehab Truck do? It’s our frontline support unit, equipped to provide immediate care and relief to our responders. In the heat of action, it serves as a haven where our firefighters and EMTs can catch their breath, rehydrate, and receive medical evaluations, ensuring they’re ready to dive back in or safely wind down from the operation.

This specialized vehicle is stocked with hydration supplies, cooling fans, and medical equipment, catering to the physical and mental well-being of our brave personnel on the scene. It underscores our commitment to not only serving our community but also safeguarding our responders who put themselves on the line.

Today, thanks to the teamwork and the vital support from our Rehab Truck, we were able to support the situation in Hopewell effectively. It’s a reminder of the complexity and dedication involved in emergency response, and the importance of every role, no matter how big or small.

We’re proud of our team and grateful for the community support that enables us to save lives and serve with excellence. Together, we make a difference. 🙏❤️

Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad is recruiting new volunteer members from Princeton and surrounding communities.  Please watch the video(s) below prior to submitting an application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. After your application is accepted, you may be offered an interview. If you are accepted you’ll begin our training process.

OUR TRAINING PROCESS 

You will have 12 months to complete the training required to get promoted to a full EMS member. In those 12 months you will: 

Be on-duty 32 hrs/month stationed at the squad, riding on the ambulance as a helping hand when calls come in. Only 16 hrs/month for Cadets (under 18) halved while in EMT class, 16 for adults, 8 for cadets. Shifts are 4, 8, 10, or 12 hrs.

Squad Training Modules

Train, Practice, and Test on 11 modules on-shift with your Crew Chief at a rate of: 

2 mods/month for adults

1 during EMT class

1 mod/month for cadets

EMT class

A state-course, not in-house at the squad, but offered at locations throughout the state. ~240 hours of in-class time, usually 2 weekday nights and 1 weekend day. 14 hrs/week + 10-20 hrs of homework/week usually offered Fall (Sep-Dec), Spring (Feb-May), or Summer (Jun-Aug). Many of the squad training modules require you to learn the skills in EMT class first, so you want to take it as early as possible.

Must be completed within 9 months of joining to leave enough time to finish squad training afterwards.

In summary, this requires a monthly commitment for the whole 12 months (you may not take leave to study abroad, do an internship, etc.), and a heavy weekly commitment during EMT class. 

For information on employment opportunities, please click here. At this time, we are not holding EMT Classes for non-members. Please do not contact the New Member Coordinator for information regarding future or outside EMT classes.
