MANASQUAN — Borough officials plan to set up a meeting with Manasquan First Aid Squad representatives soon to go over the borough’s proposed shared emergency medical services agreement with Belmar, Lake Como and Sea Girt. The date has not been set, but officials expect it to happen sometime in the next two weeks.
Representatives for the first aid squad will be invited to discuss the proposed changes, which have not been finalized, borough officials said.
The proposed shared services would be hosted by Belmar, which switched to a municipally operated squad with paid EMTs after the nearly century-old volunteer Belmar First Aid Squad ceased operations last year.
Some Manasquan squad representatives have expressed concern over the proposal, which has been in the works for a couple years and originally targeted a May 1 startup. Borough officials now say they hope the shared services can begin this summer.
