The Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad has received a $30,000 grant from the Investors Foundation for emergency medical and rescue training.

Volunteer EMTs respond to thousands of calls annually in Princeton. Continuing education training ensures the squad can deliver top-notch care and stay prepared for unforeseen disasters, squad leaders said. The Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad serves more than 30,000 Princeton residents, visitors, and students with emergency medical care and rescue services. The squad has about 110 volunteer and career members.

“This grant will help to ensure our community has plenty of trained personnel ready to respond to any type of emergency,” said Mark Freda, president of the squad.
