Princeton University provides $500,000 to support local first aid and rescue squad
Princeton University has donated $500,000 to help fund construction of a new headquarters building for the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad (PFARS). The nonprofit, volunteer-led organization provides emergency medical and rescue services to the Princeton community. PFARS has been operating out of the same building on North Harrison Street since 1963 and is working toward building a new headquarters at the corner of Route 206 and Valley Road. In addition to the University's support for PFARS, Princeton students, faculty, staff and alumni serve as fully trained volunteer emergency medical technicians each year with the squad.
