Princeton Students Among Top First Responders

Jan. 1, 2013

The Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad celebrated their volunteer corps at their annual installation and awards dinner on January 19th. This large group of dedicated and selfless volunteers provides the emergency response that the University community relies on in times of medical crisis.

The camaraderie and dedication of this group from the newest cadet to the decades-long volunteer was evident to all who attended the dinner. What was most striking was that Princeton University students comprise the majority of the squad membership and are the top responders in the program.

They are embraced by their community member counterparts, and the result is a strong partnership between campus and community that provides a reliable volunteer squad that can meet the emergency medical response needs of the Princeton community of nearly 30,000 residents.
