Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad


This Student Volunteers Council project is not active for Fall 2020.

We are a group of volunteers that work at the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad to serve the town of Princeton. As Emergency Medical Technicians, we work together on crews with other PFARS volunteers or paid staff to respond to 911 emergency medical calls. We provide care to sick and injured patients and transportation by ambulance to the hospital. Whether we are full-duty members or EMTs-in-training, we attend regular drills and classes to maintain our skills and ensure we provide our patients with the best care possible.

When: Varies by each person’s individual shifts; minimum 32 hours of riding each month (after initial training)

Where: 237 N Harrison St, Princeton, NJ 08540; transportation available through the Enterprise CarShare program

Contacts: Ares Alivisatos '21 (
