The Livingston First Aid Squad has opened its annual fundraising campaign, and has sent letters to the residents of Livingston.

The all-volunteer Squad is marking its 70th anniversary this year and, notes fund drive chairman Scott Maynard, “our mission statement of `neighbors helping neighbors’ has always been our philosophy.”

The year 2020 has been very challenging, both for residents and members of the First Aid Squad, Maynard says. “We are now dealing with an entirely newparameter of emergency medical care,” he explains. “All of our members have been specially trained to assist in all types ofmedical conditions, including COVID-19. It took some time to re-acclimate, and our members have helped greatly with our operations. We worked with RWJ Barnabas EMS Operations during the height ofthe pandemic and we continue to back each other up when needed. We are very appreciative of their assistance.”
