Who We Are:
The Rumson First Aid Squad, established in 1949, is an all-volunteer organization that provides emergency medical services to Rumson and surrounding communities as needed. Squad members are local residents – we are your neighbors. In addition to emergency medical responses, we provide stand-by coverage for local events, such as the annual fireworks display, local athletic races and games, and other community events. We respond to approximately 400 calls per year, and our services are always free of charge.
What We Do:
When a resident or visitor of Rumson calls 9-1-1 or the Rumson Police for a medical emergency, we are the ones who respond, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. We provide residents with basic life support (BLS) and medical services and provide ambulance transportation to area hospitals. If an illness or injury is life threatening, advanced life support (ALS) is also provided by paramedics.
Rumson First Aid Squad is always in need of new members to help serve the community. The Rumson First Aid Squad is made up entirely of volunteers with all levels of training.
