Whether the problem is on land or water, the Montgomery County Rescue Squad can help. Formed in June of 1970 primarily for search operations for drowned or lost persons, the organizations has extended its services to meet the needs in other life saving and rescue work. Squad personnel still provide a major role in search and rescue on land or water, but now provides assistance to the county fire service in fire suppression, vehicle extrication, and First Responder calls. Handling some 15-20 calls per month, the squad works mostly in the county area as well as along the interstate. We are a non-profit, all-volunteer organization staffed seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, by fully trained, dedicated personnel who give of themselves freely without any compensation except for the satisfaction of being able to provide emergency assistance in times of need. Squad personnel must become certified in various areas of rescue. This training is available to all volunteers both locally and throughout the state of Tennessee. Training is constant and is a must to ensure proper procedures are used to rescue victims from their plight.
