The Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad has received a $10,000 grant from the Northfield Bank Foundation to support emergency medical training for the squad’s volunteer members. Established in 1939, the squad serves Princeton’s residents, students, and visitors.

“We truly appreciate the strong support of the Northfield Bank Foundation. Community support helps to defray training costs and inspires our members to be the best they can be,” says Allison Persky, the PFARS vice president. 

Established in 2007, the Northfield Bank Foundation helps nonprofit organizations improve the quality of life for residents of the communities they serve. “We understand the challenges of a volunteer rescue squad, and we are happy to invest in their training,” said Northfield Bank Vice President and Regional Manager Carolyn Sepkowski.
