History of the Mamakating First Aid Squad
The First Aid Squad was organized out of necessity in our community. A young boy lay in the road for 2 hours following a car-bicycle accident before Horton Hospital could send an ambulance.
This incident stirred enough interest to make it possible for Ross Horton and Harold Lindsay to spearhead the organization. Ross handled the publicity and Harold recruited and trained the volunteers.The squad was incorporated on April 14, 1961.
