How to become a member of the Marlboro First Aid Squad
We are always in need of volunteers. Choosing to join the squad is a personal decision, but most people feel a satisfaction in knowing that they can make a difference in the life of another.
Who can join?
Motivated residents over the age of 16 who want to make a difference. No experience is necessary.
What types of memberships are there?
Senior Members include those volunteers who are at least 18 years old and over. Initially, these members begin as probationary members where they complete the requirements to become EMTs and develop their skills through riding.
Cadet Members are between 16 & 18 years old. They ride fewer hours per week and often graduate to senior member status once they turn 18.

– You will respond to calls and ride with senior members of the squad.
– You are on call from our building 3 hours a week.
– Free CPR and EMT training is provided.
