SUMMIT, NJ - Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad (SVFAS) members will be outfitted in new three-season, all-weather jackets thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Summit Area Public Foundation (SAPF).

All 65 volunteer SVFAS members will don the highly-reflective yellow jacket shells with zip-in liners -- visible both day and night -- which provide ample protection from the elements in rainy and cold weather.

“This generous grant from the Summit Area Public Foundation will keep our members warm and dry when responding during emergencies,” said Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad President John Buscaino. “The bright yellow, reflective color is highly visible and will enhance safety during calls. We thank SAPF for its dedication to the squad and support of our mission to provide the best possible emergency medical service.”
