The Howell Township First Aid and Rescue Squad#1 (19-21) is a Volunteer Organization that has been serving the community since 1957. Made up of Emergency Medical Technicians and Drivers, the squad answers a variety of Emergency and non-Emergency calls.
In 2012 the squad answered 2,127 first aid calls. Of those calls 458 were mutual aid to surrounding agencies. During the course of these calls the squad had a combined manhour useage of 8,475 hours. The squad also put over 36,000 miles combined on its aparatus.
The Members of Howell Township First Aid and Rescue Squad #1 respond to all 911 medical emergencies at homes, businesses, schools, and public places within the township. The squad also performs extrication at motor vehicle accidents, stands by with local fire companies for structure fires, and assists in special rescue assignments. The squad prides itself with being the first squad in Monmouth County to train members and perform extrication in the field. 19-21 is also one of the few squads that utilizes an incident command system for all motor vehicle accidents and fire calls. The squad always answers calls in a professional timely manner and is continuously seeking new members. While surrounding towns are closing down their volunteer services due to lack of membership, we are always trying to make our "family" grow. If you would like to become a member of our "elite" squad, please visit our membership page link at the top of this page.
We are always looking for CADETS!!!
