|About||Technical Rescue and Emergency Medical Services|
Yancey County Rescue Squad was established in 1971. We are a 100% non- profit volunteer organization serving all of Yancey County. Our Rescue Squad consists of State Certified Rescue Technicians, First Responders, EMTs and Paramedics. We currently operate two Technical Rescue Trucks along with a UTV that respond to a variety of emergencies including extrication for motor vehicle collisions, farm and industrial machinery accidents; Mountain and Wilderness rescue, water rescue and Search and Rescue for lost or missing persons. Two non-transport Advanced Life Support units respond to Medical calls as first responders, standby for school sports games, community events and when county EMS units are busy the Rescue Squad provides ALS coverage for the county. We are always looking for members of the community to join our family of dedicated volunteers. Interested Applicants should stop by the base and pick up an application.
