The Cullman County Rescue Squad was formed in 1962. We are a non-profit organization funded mostly by the Cullman County Commissions Office and by community donations. From the beginning we have always been there when our community needed us. The Rescue Squad does many things that most people don't know about or even realize. We have evolved over the years with the changing times just like the rest of Cullman County. In 1962, when the Rescue Squad was formed there wasn't many Fire Department around and no ambulance service. So the Rescue Squad would get calls for fires, vehicle accidents, and emergency response calls. Over the years with all the wonderful volunteer Fire Departments and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) we have had to turn our focus on other ways to help the community.
50 years after the Rescue Squad was formed we still have many things to offer the community. We do B.L.S. medical coverage for many events throughout the whole county. For example, the Cullman County Rescue Squad always has a presents at Smith Lake Park during major holidays and events, we go to various county and city football games, the county fair, the OHV Park just in case an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) is needed. We also help if needed if someone has gone missing, if there was a drowning, a disaster in the community and a mass causality incident. The Rescue Squad also has an ambulance service, for a small fee, to take people to doctor appointments, weddings, funerals, or just too transported from one facility to another. We also work very closely with the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) as their storm spotters for the county. The Rescue Squad also houses the EMA's Disaster Emergency Incident Medical Trailer.
The members and volunteers of the Cullman County Rescue Squad are dedicated and determined in helping the community any way possible. The Rescue Squad is made up of about 30 individuals from around the county. We have certified EMR's, EMT's, Firefighters, and Rescue Divers. Our goal for this website is to inform every one of all that we do as Rescue Squad members. Also let the people of Cullman County know that we couldn't do this without their support and donations. THANK YOU CULLMAN COUNTY!!
