FAQ

Q. How do I contact the rescue squad?

A. If you have an emergency, dial 911!
Otherwise, you can call directly into the station at 609-628-2476, or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Q. Do you do transports?
A. If you need a transport either home from the hospital or to another facility, call 609-628-2476. We will try to get a volunteer crew to accommodate your needs. This, however, is not a guarantee we can transport you. It all depends on the availability of our volunteer members. Unfortunately, the Upper Township Division of EMS can not transport anyone except to the hospital as an emergency.

Q. How do I join?
A. Print out an application and fill it out, drop it off in person or mail it to:

Upper Township Rescue Squad
Attn: Trustees
2028 Tuckahoe Road
Petersburg, NJ 08270

after we receive your application, someone will contact you with the next step!

Q. What do I need to do to become an EMT?
A. To become an EMT, you need to successfully complete a healthcare level CPR course. Then sign up for the next available EMT class. The course runs several months, at two evenings a week, and some weekends.

Q. How do you stay up-to-date with current medical standards?
A. Every EMT must attend Continuing Education Courses to maintain their certification. Every 3 years an EMT must obtain Core and Elective CEU's to recertify. Most training is paid for or provided by the Squad. If you do not maintain the required CEU's, your EMT certification will not be renewed by the state.
