The Branchburg Rescue Squad
The Branchburg Rescue Squad Cadet Program is a program for high school students ranging in age from 16 to 18.This is not a club like yearbook or Mock Trial. Our cadets respond to actual 911 emergencies. They are expected to study to become Emergency Medical Technicians and they are expected to act like mature adults at all times when on duty. The cadet program is great fun and highly rewarding, but it is a lot of work. Cadets must fulfill a regular duty shift (4 hours in length, up to 10pm) one night per week. Friday and Saturday nights, cadets may ride up until midnight with parental permission. Cadets are required to attend most monthly cadet meetings, cadet drills, and regular squad drills, be active in other cadet activities that are held for community or squad benefits and maintain good grades in school.
