The Lavallette First Aid Squad is in need of new members, as the pressure on current volunteers increases.
“It’s getting a little tough in both the winter and the summer,” said David Finter, a member of the squad who is also a borough council member.
Finter said the squad provides free training to new members, plus the opportunity to serve one’s community and save lives. No experience is necessary, as all of the training is provided.
“You will be helping members of your community, learning great medical skills, making life long friends,” an announcement of the membership drive said. The squad responds to medical calls within Lavallette and also conducts joint water and rescue training with the fire department.
Any person wishing to join the squad and help their community can call the captain at 732-793-7390, or download an official membership application from the borough’s website.
