This past weekend, members took part in an exercise with the Peapack-Gladstone First Aid and Rescue Squad, training for an active shooter situation. We worked closely with members from the Peapack Gladstone Fire Department, Peapack And Gladstone Police Department, Bedminster Township Police Department, and Somerset County OEM to become more efficient in handling situations like these. The Whitehouse Rescue Squad is part of the Hunterdon County Rescue Task Force, utilized when agencies are dispatched to an active shooter situation that were to happen in the county, and operate with the SWAT team in the "warm zone". Members are equipped with bullet proof vests and helmets and have many other life safety tools to use to stop bleeding, and get patients to safety. Drilling with agencies that we do not work with as frequently gives us the chance to ensure that we are prepared to handle an incident no matter where it occurs.
