Martinsville Rescue Squad was founded in 1957 to provide free emergency
medical treatment and transport services to area residents and
visitors. From our inception through today we have been 100%
staffed by volunteers from our community, all of whom believed that by
volunteering they would help make out community just a little bit safer,
friendlier, and better, in general.
In over 50
years of service we have answered many thousands of calls for help,
including over 1000 calls in 2008. We responded to emergencies in
every corner of our area and on every street, from Sunset Lake to
Mountain Top, through Martinsville, and to the Warren and Bound Brook
borders and beyond. Whether a call originated during the daytime,
nighttime, on a weekend or holiday, our members responded because
someone's family member, neighbor, or friend needed help. In fact,
you probably know someone in the Bridgewater/Martinsville area who has
benefitted from our service.
Our volunteers come from
every walk of life. They are small business owners, corporate
executives, nurses, teachers, students, engineers, consultants,
retirees, and homemakers. Despite the time demands of today's
work, family, and social life, they all find some time to give because
they believe it makes life more fulfilling.
