Pre- Hospital Emergency medicine
In November 1973, Twin Rivers residents met with East Windsor Rescue Squad and Hightstown First Aid Squad to form East Windsor Rescue Squad District II to cover Emergency Calls on the Eastern side of the township.
December of 1973, an open meeting was held at East Windsor Fire Company II. The meeting was advertised extensively and over 70 people attended. Of those 70, approximately 50 joined the new squad.
From January to April of 1974, a 5 point course was given for all new members and about 15 new members became EMT's in May of 1974.
On June 1st 1974, E.W. Rescue Squad began riding out of Triangle Publications parking lot with a rig from District I. We had 10 evening crews of 4 or 5 people. Five day crews of 4, and a total of about 70 members. We also had five babysitters to cover the day crews as most of the daytime coverage were women with small children.
In November of 1974, the East Windsor Rescue Squad District II building was completed.
January 1976, East Windsor Rescue Squad split into District I covering the western portion of the township and District II covering the eastern section.
During the past 37 years District II Rescue has seen many changes. One thing will always remain the same, the willingness to help and be a part of the community will continue.
