What type of membership do you offer?
We have a few different membership options:
Senior Squad - this is for those 18 years or older who wish to become full voting members of the organization. Senior squad members will be required to volunteer 32 hours per month. Senior Squad members recieve the most benefits from the organization.
Associate Membership - this is for those 18 years or older who wish to volunteer, but can not fulfull the requirements of a Senior Squad member. Associate members are required to volunteer 16 hours per month, however they do not have voting rights and recieve less benefits than a Senior Squad member.
Cadet Membership- this is for those under 18 years of age who are interested in eventually becoming a Senior or Associate member. Cadets will attend weekly drills/meetings, and will be required to volunteer 20 hours per month.
Are the services you provide free?
For over 75 years of service, Freehold EMS has been able to provide residents with pre-hospital care at no cost. Unfortunately, due to rising industry costs and decreasing donations we have started billing insurance companies as of January 1, 2019. All billing services are provided by Revenue Guard. For information about a bill, please call 732-308-1515 and choose option three.
