Welcome to the online home of the award-winning, all-volunteer Atlantic Highlands First Aid & Safety Squad, where you'll be able to find the latest news involving the squad and around the EMS world, 24/7.

We’ve been around since 1929 and staffed by dedicated volunteers, who give their time to deliver free, around-the-clock emergency medical and rescue services to the borough. Indeed, 2015 marks our 85th year in service.

We respond to everything from minor falls, cuts, skinned knees, broken arms and car crashes.

Think it’s all blood and guts? Think again.

While squad members occasionally do handle those sorts of calls, a majority of our emergencies do not involve blood, guts or even ugly stuff. However, what every call does involve is our passionate members providing an essential, high-quality service to the community.

Take a moment to look around, click through to some of the links, and meet some of the men and women who make the AHFAS what it is today. More important, see how you can become a part of this dynamic organization and give back to your community.

With storms like these, road flooding is always a possibility in low areas. No matter how strong, or cool, or tall you think your car may be, don't risk driving into the water. Your family will thank you.

Strong storms are in our area.
Stay indoors if you can. If you're out, do not drive into flooded roadways.

Jersey Shore Hurricane News FYI: Posted about an hour ago: http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/local/item/105084-pleasant-weekend-ahead-at-the-jersey-shore?_topstory%3Futm_source=down-the-shore&utm_medium=social&utm_content=test&utm_campaign=social-inbound

Meagan Ross Davis Did any tornados hit? The Home Depot Garden Center in Howell got turned upside down
Ron Anzivino I got a warning 5:30 this morning that we should all get in the basement but I figure the repercussions of waking my wife up at 5:30 in the morning to go in the basement would be worse than any F5 dropping on my house
Ken Ostrom We just received an emergency alert phone message in the Monmouth Beach area that the Tornado Warning lasts until 0830. Call just came in at 0717 Local. FYI
