About Us

The North Brunswick First Aid and Rescue Squad is North Brunswick Township’s EMS and Rescue agency. We are a non-profit organization composed of both volunteers and career staff, serving our community every day since 1955.  We provide Basic Life Support services and work with RWJ’s Advanced Life Support teams in NJ’s two-tier EMS system.

We operate out of two locations.  Our primary station is at 880 Ridgewood Avenue. It is easily accessible via public transportation and is located minutes from Routes 1, 130 and 27. Our sub-station is located in the Renaissance development off of Route 130.

Our fleet includes 5 ambulances, a state-of-the-art Technical Rescue Truck, a boat, several support vehicles, mobile generator, Mass Casualty Support trailer, a Communications Support Trailer and a Mobile Command Center Trailer. We also have a bike team that can be deployed for pre-planned events in areas with limited vehicle access.

NBFARS is an active member of the New Jersey EMS Task Force.  Several of our staff members are involved in the management of their Technology & Communications branch, Finance and other specialized areas.
