Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad
The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad is a philanthropically operated organization that provides state of the art emergency medical, fire, and rescue services to the Bethesda-Chevy Chase area and surrounding Maryland communities. The Rescue Squad also provides emergency medical services to upper Northwest D.C.
The Rescue Squad is a national leader in the recruitment, retention, and training of volunteer personnel. Using 150 professionally-trained volunteers, the 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.
