Now in existence for over 40 years, the Plainsboro Rescue Squad, with its state of the art equipment, continues to strive to work tirelessly to respond to any medical emergency in Plainsboro and the neighboring communities during weeknights and all day on weekends. Responding to hundreds of calls annually, the volunteer EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) give up over 25,000 hours of their time to save lives at no cost to the community.

Plainsboro Rescue Squad is a 501(c)(3) charitable entity and is funded entirely by voluntary contributions from individuals and organizations. Unlike other emergency services, we do not have access to tax dollars and depend entirely on donations. Everything from the ambulances, to uniforms, bandages and medical oxygen is paid for by donations and charitable grants. The Squad does not charge for its services.

 

With the growing communities and increasingly aging population, the Plainsboro Rescue Squad is now responding to more calls than ever.  The need for oxygen required to be administered to patients has gone up significantly.  Oxygen supply remains at a risk in case of natural disasters or mass-casualty events.

One of the objectives of 2017 is to purchase an oxygen concentrator which will enable the Squad to generate the medical grade oxygen to be administered to the patients. Cost of oxygen is the most significant cost under medical supplies. Procurement of the oxygen concentrator will help in cost savings as well as ensure uninterrupted supply of oxygen. Total cost of this system, which has a life span of 15 years, is estimated to be $28,000. We seek your support in this endeavor and any amount you can grant us will help us reach this goal earlier.

The squad gets enough oxygen delivered to handle emergency calls 24x7 based on our normal patient activity. When a disaster strikes - even when Hurricane Sandy struck, electricity was off for days and transportation was difficult. We had to deliver oxygen to the homes of people who need it daily to survive. We now have the ability to generate electricity when the power is out thanks to a grant from RWJ Foundation and viaPeople, Inc (local company). Now we need the ability to generate oxygen on our own. During the next storm or major disaster, this could save a lot of lives. Brian Jay Gould Chief - Plainsboro Rescue Squad
