Alleghany County Rescue Squad is fully volunteer, and non-profit.

We are on-call for response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. As a North Carolina medium rescue agency, Advanced Life Support first responders, and back up for Alleghany County EMS*, we are ready to respond to any call, from a person needing an ambulance for a medical call, to an automobile accident with victims trapped, to a lost hiker off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, to a drowning victim on New River, to a rock climber in trouble in Stone Mountain State Park. The squad has approx 23 active members including paramedics, EMT-I and several EMT-Basics that are certified with the state of North Carolina. We also have medical auxiliary members whom are all paramedics and serve at stand-bys and medical calls. There are also multiple certified Technical Rescuers amongst our ranks including TR certified for vehicle and machinery extrication, rope rescue, wilderness rescue, and agricultural machinery.
