Washington Township Ambulance and Rescue Association

Message to Residents

We have recently begun our 2017 subscription and fund drive. As we are not tax funded, your generous contributions are critical to the continued provision of services. As there are so many homes and businesses to reach out to, we contract with an area company to send out our request mailers. Unfortunately many of our residents received a mailer intended for our business owner/operators. If you are a homeowner or renter, and received a "Dear business owner " letter, please disregard it, you should be receiving the correct "Friends and Neighbors" letter in your mail soon.

Your tax-deductible donation helps save lives and get people to medical help every day ! Should you have any questions or concerns, or would like to make a contribution over the phone, please call us at 228-5995.
