What do you do when you need an Ambulance? Call 911? How about post a desperate plea for one on Facebook. That’s what Sandy Hook Fire & Rescue Squad’s chief, Tim Regan did when the loaner ambulance borrowed from a local distributor was recalled, leaving the National Park area without an operable rescue vehicle.
Until the storm hit in October last year, Regan’s team usually received backup from neighboring towns of Sea Bright and Highlands, which was lost when both towns were wrecked by Hurricane Sandy, he said in a note posted to Facebook.
The Twin W First Aid Squad in West Windsor, NJ came to the rescue, donating a 10-year old ambulance it had been using to assist on-scene firefighters.
