The Whitehouse Rescue Squad has a long history of commitment to providing professional cutting edge emergency medicine and rescue services to the citizens of Readington Township. In keeping with this tradition, the WHRS Rescue Services Division is proud to announce that it has just placed in service a new Paratech Mulitforce-air-lifting-bag. This device works with compressed air, can be placed under the load remotely and has the capability to lift objects of up to 31 tons over 2 feet high! Whether a vehicle, or a structural member of a collapsed structure, this airbag has the capability to help those in need. This new device will complement our full array of high pressure Paratech airbags and low pressure Paratech air cushions which are carried on our Rescue Services Unit.

For more information on volunteer membership (and to get to work with this new airbag), please visit our website, drop a PM, or call 534-2509.

Crews from Whitehouse Rescue Squad extracted the driver and provided treatment. Firefighters quickly helped clean up leaking vehicle fluids. Units were cleared by 0750.
