Why are we free?
We are able to provide free 911 emergency response because our members are not paid for their services. Our operating costs are covered completely by donations from residents. We send out an annual fund drive to all businesses and residents asking for donations. These donations keep us free and can save you hundreds of dollars during a medical emergency. Donations also allow us to continue to use state of the art equipment and keep our equipment maintained as well as pay for training for our members and medical supplies.
Why do we do what we do?
Our members and officers are simply dedicated individuals who enjoy helping others, working in the field of medicine and serving the community. We enjoy providing EMS Service, Education and Awareness to the community. The majority of our members are residents. We know that training and knowledge of volunteering at the Cranford First Aid Squad can come in handy at any time. Whether for our own families, our neighbors or even a total stranger. There are many reasons to join! Cranford First Aid Squad does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, or based on an individual's status in any group or class protected by applicable federal, state or local law.
I received a bill from an EMS Service?
If you or any member of your family was treated and transported by CFAS YOU WILL NOT receive a bill from us. However, if Paramedics were necessary and they were dispatched to this emergency, they will send you a bill that only refer to their level of treatment but not BLS service or transport.
