Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad Will Host Event to Remember EMT Who Died During Hurricane Irene


Michael Kenwood, the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad member who lost his life while conducting a swiftwater rescue during Hurricane Irene, will be remembered by his fellow squad members at an event next month.

Kenwood was a key member of the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad, where he served as an emergency medical and rescue technician, and as a trustee of the organization. He was an accomplished attorney and owned a technology consulting company.
