The Sangamon County Rescue Squad provides emergency responders who are skilled in many forms of rescue. Our Rescue Squad is medically certified through the State of Illinois, and is prepared to respond aggressively to any request for service.
The Sangamon County Rescue Squad is composed of over 40 volunteers from all walks of life. These individuals dedicate their time and skills to provide emergency services to the citizens of Sangamon County.
The Sangamon County Rescue Squad will also respond to aid other communities when requested. Requests must be made through Law Enforcement, Fire or EMS agencies. Requests can also be made by contacting the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) directly at 217-747-5102 during normal business hours or by contacting the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office at 217-753-6666.
The Rescue Squad could not operate without the continued support of the community. As a volunteer agency, we appreciate the generosity of the public and private donations that we receive.
