Several major roadways are in our response area. In the past 24 hours, we responded to 5 accidents and multiple medical calls. We are grateful to have built close partnerships with surrounding agencies which allows incidents to be managed professionally, expeditiously and most of all, safely.

Second accident was Route 22 & County Line Rd. in Readington, 2 patients to HMC. An additional accident came in at Route 22 & Sophie Street, where we transported one patient to HMC.

Our Holmatro - Rescue Tools and Extrication Equipment carried on the Heavy Rescue Unit performed flawlessly during these incidents. ...
January was a busy month for WHRS. The crews handled 147 calls ranging from Car accidents, a 7 alarm fire in Bound Brook NJ (as part of an ambulance strike team), to various different types of medical calls. The Rescue company had two drills, one being an auto extrication drill using unorthodox tools such as the high lift jack and manual hand tools, and the other being an ice rescue drill. The EMS side held our monthly probationary drill with over 10 probationary members in attendance to review splinting techniques.
We are always looking to better ourselves with different types of training but we are always looking for new members to join our team. If you or someone you know may be interested please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the station at anytime to learn more!
Below are just a few photos from January! ...
