Welcome to the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad

New Jersey's Squad of the Year!

We were honored by the NJ EMS Council as the Squad of the Year!

Anytime, anywhere . . .

Where ever there is an emergency, we are there.  24 hours per day.  7 days per week.  365 days per year.

Junior Training

The Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad boasts one of the oldest junior programs for high school students in the area.

In the beginning . . .

Early squad members care for a patient during a routine training exercise in front of the squad building. Check out those uniforms!

We need your support

The Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad is funded entirely by donations.  We accept no tax dollars.  Won't you help?

Our Volunteers

For 2014 we gathered current and past members for a ground breaking photo in the footprint of our new building.

In October 1992, the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad became one of the first agencies in the state to deliver Emergency Medical Services using bicycles.
