The Sayreville Emergency Squad is an independent non-profit VOLUNTEER corporation for the sole purpose of providing superior quality emergency medical and technical rescue services for FREE to the residents of Sayreville. It has been an organization supported and held with high regard by all the residents and every Mayor and Council of Sayreville since 1936 – that’s over 80 years! We are operated primarily by your friends and neighbors who live in Sayreville and VOLUNTEER their time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you in your time of need. We are made up of professional individuals who care about you and this town because we live in this town.
We thank you for your continued support, we ask that you take the time to consider your yearly pledge. A number of factors have contributed to the increasing cost of running the Squad. Increasing call volume, operational equipment costs (particularly replacement of apparatus), and a significant increase in administrative costs strain our annual fund drive. Unlike some other squads or departments around the State, our ambulances and equipment are purchased by donations from people just like you. We respond to over 3000 emergency calls every year (an average of 8+ per day) all made possible by the residents and dedicated volunteers.
Unlike a paid ambulance company that simply provides transport at a very high cost to you, the Sayreville Emergency Squad provides the following services FOR FREE: Medical Emergencies Heavy Rescues Water Rescues Search and Rescue Other Calls of Duty Standby at School, Sports, and other Civic Organization Events upon request
