First Aid Squad, Inc.

Liberty Corner, NJ 07938
Welcome to the "internet
home" of the Liberty Corner First Aid Squad!
Who Are We?
We are a 100%-volunteer first aid squad
providing round-the-clock emergency medical services to our neighbors,
businesses and visitors in an area that covers roughly 70% of the geography and
population of Bernards Township, NJ - from The Hills to the Spring Ridge/Dewy
Meadow Village area; and from the William Annin School/Lyons Mall area down to the
Pingry School. As residential and commercial development has increased in our
area, so has the demand for our services. Over the past few years, our squad
has responded, on average, to approximately 1100 emergency calls per year.
What Do We Do?
All of our members live in the community
and are certified Emergency Medical Technicians, responding to help infants
with seizures, school children with sports injuries or asthma attacks,
motorists injured in collisions, or adults with heart attacks, diabetic
emergencies or strokes. There is no limit to the kinds of calls we receive, and
we are trained to deal with all of them by providing initial medical assessment
and treatment, coordinating the delivery of more advanced paramedic services
where needed, and transporting patients safely and quickly to area hospitals
for definitive care.
Our purpose is to help save lives, but we also help save
taxes. We do not get paid for our services; we never charge for our services,
and we receive no funding from Township tax revenues. We rely entirely on
donations for the money we need to buy, maintain and operate our ambulances, to
acquire the medical and communications equipment and supplies we use, and for
training to assure that we continue to deliver the highest quality emergency
What Can You Do To Help?
More than anything, WE
NEED YOU! A volunteer first aid squad cannot exist without enough volunteers,
and we need more members to help us keep pace with the growing demand for our
services. No special physical or academic capabilities are needed - we really
are "ordinary people" doing "extraordinary work." As all of our members know,
serving on the squad is an extremely satisfying and worthwhile way to be
involved in the community and help people when they need it most. After
completing a 120-hour class program and passing a certification exam, free of
charge to you, all you need is a few hours a week and a desire to help your
community. To find out more about becoming a member of our squad, click on the
Membership link on the left, contact us by phone at 908-647-1145 or e-mail us.
Of course, we also
rely on you for the financial support we require to serve the community, so we
thank you in advance for your generosity when we conduct our annual fund drive
in the 4th quarter of each year, or at any time. Tax-deductible contributions
can be mailed to us at Liberty Corner First Aid Squad, P.O. Box 57, Liberty
Corner, NJ 07938.
