Upper Township Rescue Squad provides firefighter rehabilitation for Marmora, Seaville, and Tuckahoe Fire Departments as well as surrounding mutual aid fire companies.
This service is available for fire scenes as well as extended operations including, but not limited to, motor vehicle collisions, search and rescue assignments, hazmat incidents, and scheduled events. Our special operations vehicle, 21-10 is a F-250 custom utility truck specially equipped with canopy shelters, available heating, cooling/misting fans, field hospital cots, additional seating, ice chests, bottled water and sports drinks, firefighter decon wipes, and a full compliment of basic life support medical equipment.
The job of our fire scene rehabilitation team is to provide immediate on scene medical attention for firefighters and other emergency personnel. This includes re-hydration, cooling or heating to treat hyper or hypothermia, and monitoring the physical and mental well-being of emergency responders. In extreme circumstances, this resource is also serviceable as a casualty collection and treatment point.
