Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad Chief Frank Setnicky was recently awarded the New Jersey State Outstanding EMT of the Year Award, which is given by the New Jersey Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Council.

Chief Setnicky, who volunteers with CFARS and is also the paid Director of the Princeton First and Rescue Squad, “has been in the field for over 30 years. He has dedicated his life to serving and educating his community and those around him and has spent countless hours improving the services that his agencies offer to the communities he serves,” said Dr. Stephen Vetrano, state chairmen of the Basic Life Support subcommittee on the States EMS Advisory Council, when he recently presented the award. “He has spent countless hours training others in EMS and rescue operations and has personally sacrificed so much so that his communities are safer.  He is the epitome of what a New Jersey EMT represents.”
