Princeton Rescue Squad was founded in 1961 by a hand full of volunteers who saw a need for an ambulance service in Mercer County. From our humble beginnings we have grown into one of the best EMS agencies in the state. Today Princeton Rescue Squad employees over 100 skilled professionals including dispatchers, emergency vehicle operators, emergency medical technicians, advanced emt's, paramedics, billing staff and even a chaplin. Princeton is considered the oldest private ambulance service in Mercer County today. From those first few years where equipment and training were humble at best, Princeton now utilizes state of the art equipment and techniques to provide a wide range of services to our citizens.In addition to basic ambulance transports, Princeton is also a specialized rescue agency. It's in our name, and it's what we do! Princeton Rescue has a swift water rescue team, one of only a few certified Critical Care Ambulance transport services, high angle rescue, motor vehicle extrication, and mass casualty are some of the services we provide.
Princeton Rescue Squad is based in the heart of Princeton on Stafford Drive. Our facility houses the administrative offices, dispatch center, crew quarters, as well as a spacious garage bay capable of housing all our trucks and equipment. In addition to the base station, we also have three sub-stations located near Lashmeet, Green Valley, and Athens.Princeton Rescue is taking the lead in our region with the opening of a state-of-the-art education center, The Karen Preservati Center, on our main campus. This new center has an emergency shelter, community space and high-tech education classrooms allowing us to offer more opportunities to our EMS community. Our billing office is now located at the Karen Preservati Center.
