IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY - CALL 9 1 1

Memorial Day. It is not a day of celebration but rather a day to reflect on those men and women of the US Armed Forces that fought, defended and died for our freedom. This freedom that we cherish so much is because of those veterans. The Scotch Plains Rescue Squad Honors all those who served and died for us. Let us remember them in our hearts and in our prayers.

 

The Scotch Plains Rescue Squad is entering it's 78th year of all volunteer emergency medical services to the community of Scotch Plains and surrounding communities.  This is a distinction that very few rescue squads in the state have reached. 

 

The Rescue Squads, ninety plus, dedicated volunteers have over 771 combined years of service to the community. These volunteers respond to emergency calls on a twenty-four hour basis. Records indicate that the squad answered over 78,000 emergency calls in over seventy-five years of service. The Scotch Plains Rescue Squad often serves other communities for mutual aid response. These volunteers have provided service without charge to residents. The rescue squad is supported only by tax-deductible donations.
