Consisting of around 40 volunteers, the Haywood County Rescue Squad offers services such as back-up emergency medical services for Haywood EMS, and responds to a variety of emergency situations, including vehicle accidents; motor vehicle, farm, and industrial machinery extrication; search and rescue operations; swiftwater rescue; high and low angle rescue; trench rescue and confined space rescue. The Haywood County Rescue Squad has always been closely involved with the community, and continues to participate in many community and public relations events throughout the county.  In addition to our volunteer membership, Haywood County Rescue Squad has been proud to provide our citizens for the past 10 years with our “Transport Services Division,” a fleet of paid units providing convalescent non-emergency ambulance services to our citizens.
