West Milford Township
First Aid Squad is a non-profit organization of more than 60
volunteers. We provide emergency first aid and ambulance services to
West Milford, New Jersey 24 hours a day, seven days a week all year
long. Occasionally we assist the surrounding towns when their squads
are unavailable. Our crews stand by at local sporting events and public
gatherings. We are trained to provide field first aid at mass casualty
incidents and were on hand on 9/11/2001. Our squad has the distinction
of being the first squad in the State of New Jersey certified to use
automated external defibrillators (AEDs). All members are required to
be State certified EMT-B's.
At our main building
we have crutches, wheelchairs and
to loan out for short-term use. Classes for certification in CPR
(cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automated external
defibrillation) are conducted regularly in our meeting room. If you are
interested in either the loan of equipment or CPR/AED certification,
please call or send an email
and we will contact you.
On the third Sunday of every month the main building is used
blood drive. Hours are from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Thousands of pints of
life-saving blood have been collected.
