Serving the Community

Providing Exemplary Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Medical Services

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad is a philanthropically operated organization that provides state of the art emergency medical, fire, and rescue services.The Rescue Squad does not receive direct appropriated funds from any government or tax revenues. Instead, we raise almost all of our $2 million operating budget from individual donors, foundations, businesses, and occasional state and federal grants.

The Rescue Squad is a national leader in the recruitment, retention, and training of volunteer personnel. Using more than 175 professionally-trained volunteers, the Rescue Squad staffs seven “night crews” that respond to incidents during evenings, nights, and weekends. The Rescue Squad also employs a daytime staff who, with the assistance of a group of daytime volunteers and two Montgomery County Paramedics, staff our emergency vehicles on weekdays. This system ensures that personnel are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to emergencies. The Squad’s fleet, with a replacement cost of more than $3 million, includes 7 ambulance/medic units, 2 heavy rescue squads, 1 medic chase car, as well as utility and command vehicles.

The Rescue Squad is registered under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and contributions are tax-deductible as permitted by law.
