The Lumberton Emergency Squad (Station 139) is the primary provider of Emergency Medical Services for the township of Lumberton, NJ. The squad is comprised of volunteer and career members that respond to calls 24/7 within Lumberton and the surrounding areas as needed. LES is staffed by State and Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). We are military veterans, students (including pre-med), teachers, computer administrators, nurses, mechanics, store clerks, but we are all professionals serving a great community. Not all volunteers live locally but they take time away from their busy schedule to help serve the residents of Lumberton Township. We are always looking for new volunteers to join our organization. If you are interested, please download and fill out a membership application. Previous experience is not required.
Recently, LES became the first agency under Virtua’s medical command in Burlington County to carry albuterol on BLS ambulances. Our members strive every day to be the best of the best, serve as patient advocates and find innovative ways to keep up with the ever changing medical environment.
The Lumberton Emergency Squad is licensed by the State of New Jersey Office of EMS and is a member of the New Jersey State First Aid Council and the Burlington County First Aid Council. LES is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization and a registered NJ non-profit corporation.
