According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year. That’s more people than the entire population of the state of Montana.

Luckily for the community in Mercer County, we have the Princeton Rescue Squad. They’re dedicated to learning and dedicated to the community.

Working alongside local fire squads, Princeton Rescue has a special crash vehicle. It was put to use 125 times last year.

“You can have ten ambulances there, but if somebody’s stuck in something and unable to get them out, this equipment and the training and the knowledge has to be there,” said James Hill, Princeton Rescue EMT and Extrication Instructor.
