Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Rescue is an inherently expensive industry. We incur the same administrative and operational expenses as any other business such as fuel, utilities, insurance, and equipment maintenance. It takes an average of around $8,000 per month for us to function. This is compounded by the fact we do not charge for our services and have no other income than corporate and private donations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Mission of the Huntsville-Madison County Rescue Squad, Inc. is to:

• Extrication of persons from confinement, entrapment and entanglement in structures such as motor vehicles, various mechanism and apparatus, building, trenches, and other confining structures and spaces.

• Rescue and recover persons in distress on streams, lakes, and rivers and flooded areas.

• Search and rescue lost and/or injured persons in remote, rough or difficult terrain.

• Assistance as requested to emergency medical services as needed with EMS first response.

• Respond to multiple-casualty incidents and disasters to provide primary rescue and recovery services and to assist the EMS services with patient triage and care.

• The provision of any other services to the community that our specialized expertise, training and equipment can provide.

• Through knowledge and use of safe and efficient procedures and with primary consideration for the persons whom our actions are intended, we shall strive in all our missions to protect and preserve the lives of our fellow citizens.


“We Volunteer Our Time to Save Lives"

We have a minimum of two fully trained rescuers who are EMT-Basic or higher staffed on our primary rescue truck 24/7. We surge personnel and staff additional units during times of expected severe weather or similar significant events.

We have 4 apparatus with extrication tools plus additional vehicles for other taskings. We operate multiple boats as part of a water rescue plan. We train in multiple areas of rescue to facilitate mutual aid to any other requesting agency.

Rescue is an art and is constantly evolving. There will always be something you can do better, or more efficient, or faster, or with newer shinier equipment. We refuse to answer this question because we believe that the moment you say "We have accomplished..." it connotates that a goal is satisfied and you no longer have to work for it. We are ALWAYS working towards a goal of improvement because when you do not, you are already obsolete.
