Readington Township encompasses almost 50 square miles in Hunterdon County, using an impressive number of US Post Offices to deliver our mail. We can easily get confused when ‘local’ community service organizations call or write requesting donations and offering fund raising events.
The members of Whitehouse Rescue Squad want you to know that our squad has been providing EMS (Emergency Medical Services) to most of Readington since 1950 and now we are the primary EMS provider to all of Readington Township. There is only a very small portion of the township along Route 31 that we have designated other squads as first due. This allows the best response to these areas and consists of a few residences.
Whitehouse Rescue Squad’s total primary coverage area also includes a Southern portion of Tewksbury and a small Western portion of Clinton; this is in addition to Readington Township. We provide EMS and technical rescue services for our primary area. So, just what mailing addresses are included in our coverage area? All of: Whitehouse Station 08889, Whitehouse 08888, Readington 08870, Three Bridges 08887. Portions of: Flemington 08822 (the Southern portion of Readington Township using this Post Office), Stanton 08885, Neshanic Station 08853, Oldwick 08858, Lebanon 08833, Somerville/Branchburg 08876.
On May 16, 2015 from 10am-5pm, come and support the Whitehouse Rescue Squad at the 17th annual buffalo watch event at the Readington River Farm. This year's event will be bigger and better then ever featuring live music, vendors, food trucks, face painting, pony rides, plant and flower sale, tour of the farm, antique dealers, and much more!
The event will be held rain or shine!
We are excited to announce that our second ambulance is up and running in the southern section of Readington. This unit will cover the southern area of the township including the Three Bridges area, Route 202, Summer Road, etc.
This ambulance and staff is housed at the Three Bridges Firehouse and provides a rapid response to emergencies in the area.
