Alleghany County Rescue Squad is the premier rescue services provider serving all of Alleghany County, North Carolina for almost 50 years. Alleghany County Rescue Squad is fully volunteer, and non-profit.  We are made up of a group of dedicated individuals that have taken time from their regular lives and jobs to train to be professional and effective highly-trained rescuers to serve the needs of our community at no cost to those whom we provide services. We are on-call for response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. As a North Carolina recognized heavy rescue, agricultural rescue, high angle rescue, advanced life support medical responder, and ALS ambulance provider agency, 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, we are ready to help.  The squad has on average 25 active members including paramedics, EMT-A 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.  We also have a dive team for dive search and recovery.
