Resolve to Make a Difference: Become a Volunteer with the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad
As the New Year approaches, many people make resolutions aimed at improving their lives. Whetherit’s losing weight, making more money or finding love, just to name a few, most people focus on ways they can help themselves. However, others have made a year-round commitment that not only improves their lives, but also helps save the lives of the neighbors, friends and family too. These special ordinary men and women volunteer at the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad and they do extraordinary things every day. And this year, you could join them.
To make a life-changing, and life-saving resolution, follow these three easy steps:
1. Consider Your Skill Set and Interests.
- Do you thrive on adrenaline, yet keep your calm in intense situations? Do you have, or want to learn, medical or first aid skills? You could be an EMT! We’ll teach you the skills needed to savelives!
- Do you and your dog have a special bond? Become part of our K-9 unit! Our handlers and dogs are certified in all aspects of K-9 Search and Rescue including, wilderness search, waterrecovery, human remains (cadaver) search, and collapsed structure search. You and man’sbest friend will do extraordinary things together!
- Do you have experience piloting different types of boats and related equipment? Do you want to help out during a dangerous flood or river rescue? Join the marine services unit and save lives on the water.
- Are you between the ages of 12-18 years old and want to learn CPR and other first aid skills from trained professionals? Do you think you have what it takes to assist first responders during an emergency situation? You could join the youth squad!
2. Determine how much time you can commit.
Whether you can respond whenever someone needs help, have just a few hours each month to spare, or something in-between, there’s a volunteer role for you. The Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance & Rescue Squad can help you determine how to fit volunteering into your busy schedule.
