As First Responders, we serve our community 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We are an all-volunteer EMS agency, 100% supported by donations. Although our volunteer members are not paid, they meet the same training requirements the NJOEMS has for paid services. Since we were established in 1947 the area we serve has grown tremendously, as has our call volume. Our dedicated members, despite much personal sacrifice, are proud to have continuously served our community though the most difficult times including responding to the 9/11 attacks and, despite devastating damage to our building, through Hurricanes Floyd, Irene and Sandy.
We are dispatched by the Franklin Township Police Department for 911 EMS calls in Franklin Township and Somerset County Emergency Services Dispatchers for 911 EMS calls in Millstone Boro, and provide mutual aid to surrounding areas as requested. We are members of the EMS Council of New Jersey’s Fifth District.
We respond to more than 600 calls per year, more than half of those during the day. We put over 10,000 miles per year on our 100% donation paid for ambulances, and our members are proudly put in over 3,500 hours of service per year. Each year those numbers increase as our calls for service keep increasing.

East Millstone First Aid Squad: 100% Volunteer, 100% Professional, 24/7.
Neighbor helping neighbor. "Why we do it" is what sets us apart from the paid services. Our payments are often a hug, a wave at the supermarket, a heartfelt letter, or in person thanks. It's why we get up in the middle of the night to help someone. Knowing we helped our friends and neighbors when they needed it most is incomparably. We invite you to join us and see for yourself!
East Millstone First Aid Squad held a Community CPR Class at Somerset Run on July 19th. This was a CPR class where we provide information and actual practice on how to do Hands Only CPR and use a Defibrillator. Somerset Run has 3 defibrillators in strategic areas and wanted people to know how to use them. This is our 6th class we have done for them. All in all we have taught this class to over 120 people in the development.
