First Aid Squad to Remember Volunteer Michael Kenwood

Michael Kenwood, the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad member who lost his life while conducting a swiftwater rescue during Hurricane Irene, is being remembered this month by his fellow squad members. The loss of the 39-year-old volunteer on August 28, 2011 was a tragedy for his wife and family as well as for the members of the first aid squad, the EMS community, and the residents of Princeton.

Mr. Kenwood was a key member of the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad where he served as an emergency medical and rescue technician, and as a trustee of the organization. In his professional life, he was an attorney and owner of a technology consulting company. Mr. Kenwood was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, and colleague.

A memorial plaque to mark the five-year anniversary of Mr. Kenwood’s death will be dedicated on Sunday, September 18, during a gathering from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the D&R Greenway, 1 Preservation Place, Princeton. The public is invited to join members of the first aid squad and the Kenwood family to celebrate Michael’s life with remembrances of his humor, friendship, and devotion to helping others.
