Eligible applicants will be high school sophomores that will be entering their junior year in the Fall of 2024, 16 years of age by April 1, 2024 and must be willing to take the EMT certification class during the summer of 2024.
The BHVRS Cadet program is a great opportunity for high school age students to give back to their community and help out their neighbors. It is also an opportunity for students considering a career in medicine to get first-hand experience interacting and assisting with patients. Cadets will be initially trained in CPR and first aid and will ride on the ambulance, assisting the EMTs in patient care. From there, they will enroll in an EMT certification class to become NJ certified EMTs.
Our members had a great time at Community Day at William Woodruff School yesterday! They were able to show the students our newest vehicle in our fleet, our first responder vehicle. EMS-55 is used to respond rapidly to emergencies or respond to emergencies when our duty crew is out on another emergency call. EMS-55 has much of the same equipment as our ambulance but is not transport capable. We hope the students enjoyed the presentation as much as we did!
Our crew had a blast standing by at the Our House Run yesterday! Four miles and a few patients later, we hope everyone else enjoyed the day as much as we did. We always have a great time hanging out with the community and providing care when needed.
Ever wanted to help someone during an emergency at a 5k? We are always looking for volunteers, submit your application today!
Happy International Firefighter’s Day to our friends at Berkeley Heights Fire Department! We couldn’t ask for better partners to work with day in and day out. Whether it is an emergency, a standby event, or planning for what’s to come, the BHFD is right there with us ensuring we are all providing the best service we can to the Township. Truly the best!
Last weekend, the Squad had a blast at our Annual Installation Dinner! We had many award recipients, but our notable award recipients were Howie Meyer and Michele Young! Howie was awarded his 50 years of service plaque and proclamation from Mayor Angie Devanney and Michele was named Volunteer of the Year by our Chief and President. Congratulations to all award winners!
