WARREN, NJ - The AOL's of Warren's Cub Scout Pack 182 recently visited the Warren Township Rescue Squad. The facility is located at 6 Bardy Road.
The squad is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization, providing pre-hospital emergency care. Squad members render aid and assistance to more than 15,000 people in Warren Township and the neighboring towns.
After Warren Township Rescue Squad VP Irene Weinstein led them on a tour of the facility, the boys were able to step inside one of the ambulances and see all of the life-saving equipment first hand.
The Warren Township Rescue Squad is a 100% Volunteer Organization and is a member of the New Jersey First Aid Council, saving the community since 1940. Each time the Warren Township Rescue Squad is dispatched by the police, volunteers will arrive within minutes. Each full member completes courses in Emergency Medical Technician, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and Emergency Childbirth.
The Warren Township Rescue Squad is looking for new members now, so that it can continue its 70 year tradition of dedication to the community. The squad urges all interested individuals to consider volunteering for the experience of a lifetime.
The AOL's were surprised to learn that in just a few years they can join the cadet program. Weinstein said," we are always in need of new members and will be happy to train you."
No prior training or medical knowledge is necessary . If volunteers can spare as little as four hours a week, the squad can use your help. For more information, call 908-753-2477 or visit warrenrescuesquad.com.
