In 1951 a small group of Pequannock Township citizens decided they wanted to form an ambulance service for the residents of the community. Since that time, the township's population has grown dramatically. The 50+ members of the Pequannock Township First Aid and Rescue Squad now service over 15,000 people including Cedar Crest Village.
The First Aid Squad is a private, not for profit organization, completely independent from the Township of Pequannock. The squad operates under the direction of a 3 member board of trustees. In addition, the Squad's daily operations are handled by a 6 member administrative executive board and a 3 member operational staff.
The service of our members is widely appreciated and the honors received by the membership from both our local and state government are truly taken to heart. The squad is honored to help the citizens of Pequannock Township and the surrounding communities 24 hours a days, 365 days a year.
