PISCATAWAY, NJ – Established in 1961, the River Road Rescue Squad is an all-volunteer rescue squad that provides emergency response and basic life support services to the residents of Piscataway and the surrounding areas.

The squad is on duty every night of the year to respond to a variety of calls including medical emergencies and motor vehicle crashes, and provides standby services at public events, according to its website.

In a Saturday news release, Chief Evan Shegoski wrote an open letter to express his gratitude to the Piscataway community for its support in helping to keep the squad in operation over the years and announced the delivery of a newly refurbished ambulance.

In his letter, Shegoski said:

“To the Residents of Piscataway, 

It has been a long journey over the last three and a half years as we have worked hard to rebuild our agency. It is our goal to ensure our longevity and our ability to provide quality emergency services to the residents of Piscataway and its surrounding communities.

During this time, we have been able to realize the support of our community through volunteer manpower, financial support, political support, and other means that are hard to come by in so many other surrounding areas. It is the support of our community and our over 30 all-volunteer providers that allow us to improve and grow year over year.

Today we took a very visible leap forward with the delivery of this beautiful ambulance that we simply could not afford to refurbish three years ago when it was remounted. This project would not have been possible without the support of the many. We simply cannot thank everyone enough!”
