The Wall Township First Aid & Rescue Squad, also known as Squad 52-21 was formed on September 15, 1939 and is Wall Township's first ‘First Aid' squad. We were the sole provider of First Aid services to the Township until the Wall Community First Aid Squad (Squad 52-22) was formed in 1962. In 1991, the Wall Police EMS (Squad 52-23) was formed by the Wall Township Police Department to supplement the town's volunteer squads during the working week. Collectively we work together to provide a first class EMS service to the citizens of the Township.
