Highland Park First Aid Squad Needs Your Support | Print |  E-mail
Highland Park First Aid Squad

The Highland Park Volunteer First Aid Squad is facing serious finanical problems that could affect all the residents of Highland Park.

Many people believe that the squad is owned, and / or funded by Highland Park, but this is not true. The Borough of Highland Park donates to the squad only $26,000 per year. However, the Highland Park Volunteer First Aid Squad's budget this year is about $100,000. The $74,000 difference between the Bourough's donation and the budget comes mainly from donations.


Unfortunately, due to the poor economy, the squad's donations are down by about $10,000 from where they are normally this time of year. The squad also requires a new ambulance which can cost somewhere between $150,000 to $200,000.

Members of the Highland Park squad are volunteers who are ready and willing to help. The Highland Park first aid squad is always there when we need them. Anyone who has had a medical emergency in Highland Park knows that our First Aid Squad is there with in minutes to help out. 

We know these are tough times for everyone, and this includes the squad members themselves. Many members of the squad are working multiple jobs to survive in this economic downturn. Yet, thank G-d they still find the time and desire to lend us a helping hand when we need it.

Please mail a check or money order (please do not send cash) to the Highland Park First Aid Squad, 128 South Eleventh Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904.

You can also help the squad by buying a discount card available from their location on South 11th Avenue. There are three cards and they cost $10 a piece or you can get all three for only $25. All proceeds go directly to the First Aid Squad.

The following is a list of businesses that support the Highland Park Volunteer First Aid Squad by giving you a discount when you present the proper First Aid Squad discount card. You can help the First Aid Squad and help yourself by picking up one or more of the discount cards from the First Aid Squad.
