I was born and raised in Newark and enjoy looking thru the entries on this site. I saw an entry about Vailsburg First Aid Squad and someone was doing research on volunteer squads in Newark. I was a volunteer at VFAS from 1971 until about 1976(???). I only left when I started working for Newark EMS. If you still need info, please contact me.
Just ran across this site and saw a few members of the executive board passed away. i served from (guessing) 1977 through 1982. other members of the squad with me were bob poth, george hoferer, and many others. i am still friends with one of the members since then.
aside from the calls, we had good times and lots of laughs. usually if you saw one member somewhere, there was also a few others too.
who are you if you don't mind my asking.
