Members of the High Bridge Emergency Squad are our friends and neighbors. They live and work in our community. Squad members are on call to serve.

HBES is seeking new members. If you are the type of person who wants to make a difference in your world, becoming a volunteer might be the opportunity you are looking for. Many community members have answered the call for emergency services in High Bridge, and we are looking for motivated and dedicated individuals to join our ranks. If you want to help, HBES welcomes you.

Whether you are looking to volunteer a weekend, a month, or one night a week, your service is welcome. As a member you will have access to training in emergency medical and rescue services. There are multiple opportunities to learn new skills and challenge yourself. You can volunteer as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), where you will be providing emergency care for the sick and injured in our fleet of ambulances. As a Rescue Associate, you will be volunteering in a technical setting, extricating victims from car crashes, assisting in water rescue, or supporting local firefighting operations.

If emergency medical or rescue services are not right for you, HBES offers Support Membership. Here, volunteers provide the essential, day-to-day elements that ensure our emergency services can be conducted. If you wish to volunteer with us, WE HAVE THE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE RIGHT FOR YOU.

Applications can be obtained on our website (see below) or at our Headquarters located at 95 W. Main Street, High Bridge (the first Wednesday of each month 7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.).

Jessica Luteran, HBES President
