Rescue Squad Seeks Donations Through Letter Drive

The Henderson County Rescue Squad Inc., which formed in 1957, is seeking donations through a letter drive that began November 28th, 2016.  The Rescue Squad is an IRS approved 501(C)(3) non-profit tax-deductible corporation.  One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation will go to support the Rescue Squad in much needed capital improvements.  During 2015, the Henderson County Rescue Squad responded to over 2,790 calls for service. These calls for service included medical emergencies, water rescues, automobile accidents, rehab at structure fires, missing person searches, and medical standbys for EMS and at community events such as football games, festivals and numerous races.  We have 92 personnel who train and work hard every day to provide an outstanding service for you. We currently have 61 Emergency Medical Technicians and 39 Rescue Technicians. Our members put in many hours away from their families and homes to provide you with a well-trained department that is ready to serve you at a moment’s notice.  

Yes, we give our time, but the supplies and equipment needed to do our job are expensive. Henderson County has allocated money this year to help cover part of our operating costs; however, help is still needed for equipment and capital improvements. Please let that help include you.  Our capital needs for this year include replacement personal protective equipment for specialty rescue operations, funding to assist with the purchase of a specialized sonar unit for underwater recovery operations as well as the establishment of a capital fund for vehicle replacements.
