Serving Others Since 1961

Welcome to the home of the River Road Rescue Squad!

The River Road Rescue Squad is a Basic Life Support (BLS) Emergency Medical Services (EMS) provider headquartered in Piscataway, NJ and dispatched internally by River Road MedCom. Founded in 1961 by residents driven by their desire to serve their community, we have continued our tradition of service through volunteerism to serve residents and visitors of Piscataway Township and anywhere else the need may arise.

Our organization - which leverages more than 60 years of in-field experience - is licensed by the NJ Department of Health - Office of Emergency Medical Services and exists to save lives, relieve suffering and injury, promote safety in all of its branches and provide ambulance and rescue services to the sick and injured regardless of race, creed or ability to pay.  Our team is comprised completely of volunteers that operates 24/7/365 with a mix of in-station staff and scramble (recall) coverage to ensure that our patients and community receive the care they deserve. 

In addition to emergent (9-1-1) BLS level ambulance service, we also provide specialty services for water and off-road rescue assignments and standby service for pre-scheduled events as well as for inclement weather/disasters as they arise.

  As time continues on, we look forward to what our team can achieve!
