  1. The problem I see with the LFAS SUV is it is numbered 520. If Lakewood First Aid and Lakewood EMS would follow the county numbering scheme like they are supposed to 520 would be used by Scott Carter the Lakewood paid EMS supervisor. This SUV should be numbered 250 for Lakewood First Aid’s Captain since they are squad 25 and Lakewood paid EMS is squad 52. In the event of a mass casualty incident where EMS units from all over the county respond, using the incorrect numbers can create unneeded confusion. Also LFAS ambulances seem to be using squad 52’s numbers rather then 25’s. From what I have seen Lakewood Hatzolah uses the correct numbering as they are squad 45 and their vehicles reflect that and LFD also use the correct county station numbers. Something to consider for squad 25 if you were not aware, It is a nice SUV though so congratulations on that.

  2. The reason 250 is not the Captains number is because 250 is a police officer and we get dispatched locally, not by the county. The 500 series is EMS/FA.

  3. Exactly why does the Lakewood first aid squad need a first responder vehicle?? do they run calls like the paid crews in town? and where will this veh be stationed..will it be assigned for one certain member or whomever gets to it first?

  4. EMT that’s not a valid excuse, Toms River’s EMS squads are local dispatch and they follow the county numbers as do Point Pleasant and Jackson. So I guess Jackson PD are more capable then Lakewood’s emergency services to distinguish PD officer 220 from EMS captain 220 of squad 22. Further some of the county dispatched squads have their police dispatched by county as well and there are no issues distinguishing Beachwood First Aid squad 15 captain 150 from PD 150. Lakewood FAS 250 should have no issues with being confused with PD 250.
