We serve our community 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We are an all-volunteer EMS agency, 100% supported by donations. Although our volunteer members are not paid, our members meet the same training requirements the NJOEMS has for paid services. Since we were established in 1947 the area we serve has grown tremendously, as has our call volume. Our dedicated members, despite much personal sacrifice, are proud to have continuously served our community though the most difficult times including responding to the 9/11 attacks and, despite devastating damage to our building, through Hurricanes Floyd, Irene and Sandy.
We are dispatched by the Franklin Township Police Department for 911 EMS calls in Franklin Township and Somerset County Emergency Services Dispatchers for 911 EMS calls in Millstone Boro, and provide mutual aid to surrounding areas as requested. We are members of the EMS Council of New Jersey’s Fifth District.
We respond to more than 600 calls per year, more than half of those during the day. We put over 10,000 miles per year on our 100% donation paid for ambulances, and our members are proudly put in over 3,500 hours of service per year. Each year those numbers increase as our calls for service keep increasing.
Are you looking for a truly satisfying way to make a difference in people’s lives when they need it the most? Do you want to learn the skills to help save lives and know what to do in an emergency? We are always looking for new members to join us. We provided training for our members, please call anytime 732-873-8882 and leave a message.
We have a wonderful group of members and we participate in numerous community activities. We proudly serve Franklin Township and Millstone Boro and surrounding areas whenever needed. We responded the 9/11 attacks and several Statewide Emergencies when needed. Most of our members work full time and volunteer whenever they can. We are lucky to have several members who can respond during the daytime hours. There certainly is never a dull moment around here! One minute you're cleaning out a flooded building and then the tones go off, and you're off responding to a 911 call. It's fun, it's exciting, it gives you a wonderful feeling inside when you can help a neighbor in need.
We help people on what is often the worst day of their lives...
