Our members do much more than just respond to emergency
calls. We provide standby services at
numerous community events throughout the year. Some of these include: The Chester
Craft Shows, Peach Festival, Chester Fireman's Carnival, Octoberfest, Rugby Tournaments, Mendham HS
Football games, Chester Day, BRMS Science Fair, D.A.R.E. Graduation, etc.
We also host the Northern New Jersey Safe Kids Car Seat Inspection
Station. Just stop by our station on the first Tuesday of the month from 2-6pm
or the third Thursday of the month from 7am-noon, and the certified technicians
will ensure your child's safety seat is the correct type and properly installed.
The squad also has an annual helmet campaign, initiated after we were called to help a child who suffered a serious head injury while sledding. The campaign helps educate parents about the need for helmets and provides the helmets at an affordable price.
We have several members who are certified American Heart Association
Instructors and we help train school teachers, athletic coaches and members of the
public how to save a life using CPR and AED’s.
Additionally, the squad also hosts several events throughout the year, including blood drives, a very popular senior brunch, and a "Lifeline" screening, to help identify cardiac problems before they result in a trip to the Emergency Room.
We are proud to be able to impact our community in varying positive ways.
