Waretown First Aid is an all Volunteer Squad founded on April 5, 1962 by 26 Ocean Township residents and 5 members from Barnegat First Aid. Waretown First Aid began service with a 1957 Cadillac ambulance. With the cooperation of the Waretown Fire Department, our original ambulance was stored inside the firehouse. In 1966 the Ocean Township Board of Education provided property for a First Aid Headquarters, the same in which we remain today. Prior to the construction of the First Aid Headquarters, the original "Little Red Schoolhouse" sat on this property where it was abandoned in 1959 by the Board of Education.
The mission of Waretown First Aid is to provide the residents of Ocean Township with reliable, professional, and compassionate medical care in a timely fashion. We respect all patients, families, and each other.
Our role in the community
Waretown First Aid Squad handles various kinds of calls, ranging from medical emergencies (injuries and illnesses), motor vehicle accidents and car/house fires. Answering your call for help is our primary mission. Our 100% volunteer membership is constantly continuing their education in order to promote and fine-tune their skill sets to better serve you. When not responding to a call, Waretown First Aid squad participates in community events by providing stand-by emergency assistance at events such as races, parades and more!
