Mission Statement

The purpose of this organization is to save lives, relieve suffering and injury, promote safety in all its branches and provide ambulance and rescue services to the sick and injured regardless of race, creed or ability to pay.


The River Road Rescue Squad is a Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulance service headquartered in Piscataway, NJ. Founded in 1961 by residents driven by their desire to serve their community, we have continued our tradition of service through volunteerism to serve residents and visitors of Piscataway and the surrounding Greater Middlesex Area.

Our organization - which leve ra ges more than 60 years of in-field experience - is licensed by the NJ Department of Health - Office of Emergency Medical Services and is comprised completely of volunteers that operates 24/7/365 with a mix of in-station staff and scramble (recall) coverage to ensure that our patients and community receive the care they deserve.

In addition to emergent (9-1-1) BLS level ambulance service, we also provide specialty services for water and off-road rescue assignments and standby service for pre-scheduled events as well as for inclement weather/disasters as they arise.

Excellent organization with an amazing mission in serving their community. Becoming a volunteer EMT with River Road truly inspired my passion for medicine and provided me with invaluable skills not taught in school. I highly recommend joining!
