This rescue squad is one step closer to having a new building

RARITAN TWP. - An application to construct a new home for the Flemington-Raritan First Aid & Rescue Squad will soon be heard by the township Planning Board, according to the squad.

Plans for the new building, to be located at 29 Royal Road, were deemed complete, clearing the way for hearings to be scheduled.

"We thank the township of Raritan for their continued support of this building project, and we look forward to moving into the township," said Attila Huebscher, president of the rescue squad. "This is not just an important and historical event for our squad, but also for our entire community.

"With new senior housing, businesses and residential neighborhoods being built in the next few years, our services may be utilized, and we would need to be prepared, not only in the latest state-of-the-art equipment, but with a facility that can finally house all of this equipment, and volunteers."

The squad, which has been in Flemington since 1952, has outgrown its current facility, and the borough does not have any other area large enough for the squad to relocate to, according to a news release.

The squad is planning on constructing a total of seven drive-thru style bays to house its five ambulances, two heavy rescue vehicles, a storm water rescue truck and variety of trailers and other mobile life-saving equipment.

On the east side of the building will be administrative offices, common areas and a new training facility that can house all the squad's current volunteers and staff, along with neighboring rescue squads that currently train together with the Flemington-Raritan First Aid & Rescue Squad.

After years looking for the right location, the squad had purchased the Royal Road property in June of last year.

"This location is within a mile radius of our current location, with faster access to primary roadways," Huebscher said. "This was the most important detail of this project as we had to consider our response times for the residents of Flemington, Raritan, Delaware and surrounding areas that we serve."

The squad has a contract of sale for its current location on Route 12, with the purchase expected to be completed by May. This sale of the property will aid in the boost for starting the building project, but much more funding is required for completing the new building, according to the news release.

A New Building fund drive will be announced after approvals have been given, however, the rescue squad is asking anyone that would like to "Sponsor A Room" or to make a general donation to contact Huebscher at 908-627-6551 or mail Attila Huebscher, c/o Flemington-Raritan First Aid & Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 686, Flemington, NJ 08822.

Huebscher said the squad offers its thanks to the entire community for their years of support.
