The Flemington – Raritan First Aid & Rescue Squad is excited to announce the start of a new program, Member Spotlight. Once a month we will be spotlighting one of our members along with their contributions and achievements within our organization and our community.
With the 4th of July stirring our patriotism, we figured there was no better place to start than with one of our younger members who recently enlisted in the United States Army with the goal of becoming a combat medic.
Following in her sister Lisa’s footsteps, EMT Kelly Franchino, 18, joined the department at the age of 16. In the spring of 2018, Kelly completed the required training and passed the testing to earn her New Jersey Emergency Medical Technician Certification. Kelly sharpened her skills as one of our junior members over the past two years. In May, Kelly moved to a full adult member of the organization. She recently graduated from Hunterdon Central High School and enlisted with the US Army. She reports to boot camp in early August. In addition to her hard work and dedication to FRFARS, Kelly is a lifeguard/swim instructor at Little Dolphins Swim Academy. She enjoys cheerleading and Irish step dancing. If you happen to see Kelly out and about, please help us in wishing her the best of luck as she pursues her career in the US Army as a combat medic (68W).
