COVID-19 Update

The cadet program is a point of pride for the Millburn-Short Hills Volunteer First Aid Squad. Cadets and adults all benefit from the program and cadets are valuable members of our crews. The health and safety of all of our personnel is our first priority, and because of the restrictions the coronavirus pandemic has put on our organization, the application process for 2021/22 cadets is on hold. We will continue to monitor the state of the pandemic and will update this page when we open applications for new cadets. If you have questions, you can email

The Millburn Short Hills First Aid Squad Cadet Program began in 2008 when we accepted our first four cadet EMTs as new members. Since that time, we have proudly accepted several new cadets each year. Cadets must be fully trained EMTs and maintain a CPR certification. Our cadets must be 16 years old, live in Millburn Township, attend high school and ride as members of a standing crew. They volunteer between 4 and 16 hours per week as part of our squad’s schedule, wear the squad uniform and are under the direct supervision of a crew chief. Cadet membership requires training, dedication to the community, and a serious commitment to the squad. Our cadets receive their on-going training along with our adult members. We welcome inquiries and if you are ready for the challenge, we are happy to set up an appointment for an interview.  If you still have questions, take a look at FAQs.
