About the Squad
The East Brunswick Rescue Squad is a non-profit emergency medical service. We are dedicated to serving the residents of East Brunswick and surrounding towns in their time of need.
EBRS is licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health. We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, with both volunteer & paid staff. We have responded to over 2400 calls for assistance over the last 12 months. We are also proud to assist our community in providing standby ambulances for our community, at celebrations and at sporting events.
We currently have about 80 volunteer members. We operate five BLS ambulances, plus administrative, supervisory, command staff, from our facility located at the
corners of Cranbury and Summerhill Roads.
In addition to responding to
emergency calls, the Rescue Squad is involved in various other
services, which benefits our Community. Some examples are the
attendance at various sporting events throughout the Township,
participation in Community events and celebrations and
sponsoring first aid training.

In December 2013, East Brunswick Township migrated to a
Project 25 Digital UHF trunked radio system consisting of five
repeater pairs in the 500MHz area. This system is used by all
township services plus South River & Spotswood Borough services.
An APCO P25 digital trunk-tracking scanner is needed to monitor the township's radio system. All routine communication
including dispatching takes place on this system.
