Saving Lives is Our Mission

In times of crisis, a helping hand can make the difference between life and death. The Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad (PFARS) knows this all too well, providing a helping hand to thousands of patients each year in their times of need.

From childbirth to cardiac arrest, allergic reactions to car crashes, the members of PFARS respond at a moment's notice to provide that helping hand.  Certified as Emergency Medical Technicians, with extensive post-certificate training, PFARS is ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

PFARS also specializes in technical rescue services, including vehicle extrication, confined space rescue, high and low-angle rope rescue and water/ice rescue. The extensive training required for these highly-skilled services ensure our members are prepared to help those that find themselves in a life-threatening situation.

Serving the community since 1939, PFARS is a volunteer-led, non-profit, independent organization dedicated to providing the Princeton community with professional, courteous and skilled emergency medical and technical rescue service
