  • 22 people are interested

Call to interested people living near Bridgewater, New Jersey who are at least 18 years of age.
The Finderne First Aid and Rescue Squad is in need of volunteer Ambulance Drivers who reside in Bridgewater, New Jersey, or in neighboring towns.
As an ambulance driver, you'll be an important person on the crew who will assist the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) in every aspect of the EMS call as well.

As an ambulance driver, it is important to operate the ambulance in a safe manner, while obeying traffic laws and ensuring the well-being of patients and your crew during transport. You'll be trained in CPR and basic first aid to assist the EMT. You'll work with a crew on the Finderne First Aid and Rescue Squad, and respond to 911 emergency medical calls in the section of Finderne within Bridgewater. We will also answer calls for "Mutual Aid" to other parts of Bridgewater and contiguous towns, and they also assist us as needed.

Drivers must possess interpersonal skills, a safe and good driving record, the ability to bend/lift, and climb stairs. Becoming a volunteer with the rescue squad is an opportunity to make a life-saving impact in the community. Your skills and dedication can save lives, offering hope and relief in times of crisis. Step forward, become a volunteer, and be the difference that inspires others to do the same.
