Annual Open House and Wetdown

The Warren Township Rescue Squad cordially invites you and your guests to attend our Open House for prospective new members and our Wet Down to celebrate our new ambulance. The first part is the open house from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM followed immediately by the Wetdown until 4:00 PM. Everything will be help at our building at 6 Bardy Road in Warren, by the beautiful new Township Municipal Building.

EMS agencies and fire departments traditionally do a wetdown every time we get a new apparatus  that enters service. This time we are honoring the new Ford F-450 with Stryker Automatic Power Stretcher so generously purchased for us by the town in 2016.  We’ll have food, games, and drinks (for both adults and children). We traditionally do these with the Fire Department, who provide us with the water for the name of course, and we look forward to seeing them there again this year.

The Open House invites anyone interested in membership in the WTRS and serving Warren as a certified EMT. It is an excellent time to ask questions about EMT requirements as well as what volunteering asks of you. At the Open House you can take a personal walk through of an ambulance as well as our headquarters.

Be sure to like and share this event with all your friends and follow our Facebook Event for updates on what we’ll have and what we’ll be doing!

The membership gratefully wishes to thank the Warren Township Committee and Township Administrator for their assistance in purchasing this municipally owned ambulance, call sign 61-R3, that is the cornerstone for these two events.

All fire companies and EMS agencies are welcome to bring a fire apparatus, ambulance, or first responder vehicle to the Wetdown.

The Warren Township Rescue Squad is totally volunteer and relies solely on community members to staff our agency.

New Rig 3 Dedication Ceremony

Back in 2015 the Township first started working with the idea of getting the Rescue Squad a new ambulance and it 2016 it became finalized and happened. Arriving in November of 2016 was our new Rig 3 that replaced our old ambulance of the same name. It went into service on Tuesday March 7th, 2017.

On June 24th, 2017, the Warren Township Rescue Squad and the Township of Warren had a formal dedication ceremony for the amazing new ambulance.

In attendance was the membership of the Warren Township Rescue Squad plus Mayor Carolann Garafola and Committeeman Gary DiNardo.

The Warren Township Rescue Squad is extremely grateful for the new ambulance and thanks everyone who helped make it possible, including the Township Committee and the Administration and Purchasing Offices of Warren Township!

Thank you for all your hard work that you guys put into this. We are so happy with what you have given us and, more importantly, so are our patients.

 

Old Rig 3 Donation

On January 10th, 2017, we donated our old Rig 3 to the Elberon First Aid Squad down by the Jersey Shore. Our old Rig 3, which the new ambulance given to us by the Township will be replacing, was originally purchased back in the ’80s.

It has served as our primary ambulance for many years and in its final time was the primary ambulance we would use for staffing standbys and other special events. We are pleased to be donating it to the Elberon First Aid Squad which needs it more than we do. They run 24/7 serving a community of 15,000 people and only had one ambulance, until now.

The Warren Township Rescue Squad chose to donate our old Rig 3 once we found out that we would be given a new on by our Town. This donation would not have been possible without what Warren Township is doing for us.

We are happy to have found such a needing squad and we hope that this donation make a huge impact for not only their Town, but also their patients.

Warren Township Rescue Squad Celebrates 75 Year Anniversary

The Warren Township Rescue Squad celebrated its 75th anniversary this past weekend. We are proud and thrilled to have made it for this long to and to have been helping Warren Township and its amazing residents for this long, too.

We would like to thank everyone that has helped us get to this part including everyone, including the Township of Warren and its residents, who have been the bulk of our financial support for all this time. Additionally, we’d like to thank the Township Committee and Administration for all the support they have given us since our inception. Most of all, we would like to thank our current and past members who kept us running for this long. They have been our bread and butter with respect to what keeps us providing emergency medical services.

A small group of men started this organization back in 1940 with the objective of providing timely medical care to Warren and its residents. What they didn’t know was that they would be getting the ball rolling on something that would by far eclipse both the equipment and techniques they were using back then.

We are eternally grateful that this wonderful organization was started and has survived 75 years. We hope to serve the Warren Community for the next 75 years to come!
