First Aid Squad

The Fair Haven First Aid Squad is an all-volunteer unit of the Fair Haven Fire Company that provides around-the-clock emergency medical services, land and water rescue and transportation for the residents of Fair Haven. Even though we have our own officers, training requirements, and equipment, we are fully integrated into the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Company No. 1. As a part of this integration, we respond to every response of the Fire Department as well as to emergency medical situations.

To request emergency medical assistance in the Borough of Fair Haven, Dialing 9-1-1 contacts the Monmouth County Communications Center, which is staffed by trained emergency medical personnel. While the 9-1-1 operator is giving the caller first aid instructions, another operator is simultaneously dispatching the first aid squad. Remember to stay on the line with the operator and remain calm. Help will be on the way!

The membership requirements were modified a few years ago to allow new members who are not interested in being a member of the other Fire Company units (Fire Department, Fire Police, Auxiliary) to nevertheless join as an Affiliate member of the Fire Company and participate actively in the First Aid Squad. To participate in this manner, applicants seek “Affiliate Membership” in the Fire Company, as explained in the Joining FHFD section.
