Residents will receive a request for a donation to the squad’s annual fund drive in the mail later this month.

“We do not receive any tax money,” noted Lynn Feldman, vice president of the squad, which is comprised entirely of volunteers. Money from the drive will go toward such expenses as maintaining ambulances and training volunteers.
