Pennington First Aid Squad (PFAS) seeks dedicated and mature adults, senior citizens, and qualified students (must be 16 years of age or older) interested in serving their community and continuing the tradition of the hometown heroes who founded PFAS in 1954. Applicants should be eager to learn and apply EMT medical protocols to assist patients and their families during emergencies.

Please note that volunteering at PFAS is a serious commitment. We expect members to commit to a regular riding schedule of at least 8 hours per week; non-EMTs are expected to become EMTs within the first year of membership. We will only consider applicants who can meet these minimum requirements. Please take this into account before applying.
