MORGAN COUNTY RESCUE SQUAD

In the early 1960’s, a group of men from the Flint area realized the need for an organized emergency response team for the community. The Flint Rescue Squad was organized in the fall of 1964 and operated under that name for 25 years. Upon organization, there was neither money nor equipment available to the Squad. The first dragging operation was accomplished with a borrowed boat. However, since 1964, the Squad has acquired equipment necessary to operate an efficient Rescue Squad.


In 1987 the name was changed to Morgan County Rescue Squad, Inc. The Squad members felt that it was more appropriate since the Rescue Squad had expanded their operations serving all of Morgan County. The men and women serving the Squad do so with no compensation. They are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days year-round. The members are professionals who contribute greatly to our area and communities. They are dependent on the public for support since there is not enough guaranteed annual funding from cities within the county, the county itself or the state.
