For over 68 years the all-volunteer Watchung Rescue Squad has been serving the residents and visitors of the Borough of Watchung and surrounding communities in their time of need. We provide high quality, volunteer Emergency Medical Service, at no cost to the residents of Watchung. As a non-profit, volunteer organization, Watchung Rescue Squad relies on donations through fundraising efforts to help pay for medical supplies, training, and operating expenses.

Providing quality emergency medical care is challenging and expensive; operational and training costs are on the rise while state funding is being reduced. Your contributions are vital to our operation, as 70% of our income comes directly from the generous donations of people like you.

Your donations allow Watchung Rescue Squad to make repairs to and maintain our building; purchase and maintain our ambulances and other equipment; respond appropriately to calls by stocking our ambulances and first responder with necessary medical supplies, as well as protective equipment for our emergency responders; supply uniforms to our volunteers; and provide up to date training to allow us to provide the best care to our patients. 

Please be as generous as you can and make a fully tax-deductible donation to your all-volunteer, non-profit Rescue Squad. Every donation is important to us, regardless of the amount.
