And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Tewksbury First Aid & Rescue Squad supports the emergency medical needs of our community.
The Squad was established in 1990 by dedicated volunteers who were serving our community through other Fire, First Aid and Rescue Services. We have been providing excellence in prehospital care for 27+ years. Our prehospital services range from Basic Life Support (BLS) to extrication during motor vehicle accidents to various other forms of Rescue Services. We currently have 2 Ambulances, 2 First Responders, 1 Gator for Off Road Rescue/Transport and 1 Rescue Unit. We consist of approximately 25 active volunteers whose efforts result in 100% free service to Tewksbury Township citizens and guests. These dedicated volunteers hold various positions, participate in different committees and fulfill all of the training and continuing education required to serve the Township. Our ranks also include a vibrant Cadet program, members who are also Firefighters and members who are EMTs with other Squads.
