Who We Are

The Ironbound Ambulance Squad was formed in 1952 by a group of Ironbound residents who wanted to decrease the response time for ambulances to emergency calls in the tight and narrow streets of the Ironbound Section of Newark. The group formed the squad and purchased the ambulances. The squad receives no federal or municipal funding for its operation. Throughout the years Ironbound Ambulance squad has been a fully self-sufficient entity and has evolved into a vital public safety organization. Read More
