Freehold EMS has had a busy few weeks. As of today we have been responded to over 1,260 calls for emergency service in 2024 so far! In addition to medical emergencies, we have responded to several fire related incidents and special events. Last Sunday, we participated in the Freehold Borough St. Patrick's Day parade led by our talented and growing Cadet Corps.

On Friday, we received a visit from the First United Methodist Church who annually visits the different public safety stations in Freehold. We thank them for their donation of delicious treats and financial contribution! Thank you to councilwoman Sharon Shutzer, clergy, and the congregation at First United Methodist Church for always thinking of us!
