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. In 2017, we responded to over 2400 calls for assistance. We are also proud to assist our community in providing standby ambulances for civic events, holidays and celebrations, and at sporting events.
We currently have about 80 volunteer members. We operate five BLS ambulances, plus administrative, supervisory, and command staff, from our facility located at the
corners of Cranbury and Summerhill Roads.

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. All routine communication
including dispatching takes place on this system.
In the Township of East Brunswick, unit numbers in the
300 range are PD, the 700 range belongs to the Old Bridge
Volunteer FD (EB District 1), the 800 range to the East
Brunswick Independent Fire Company (EB District 2),
