Equipment To Rely On When It Counts

Landrum Rescue Squad is a volunteer EMS and specialized rescue provider serving the Foothills of Upstate South Carolina. Established in 1969, Landrum Rescue has operated for almost five decades without being county subsidized or receiving local, state, or federal tax dollars. As the only remaining Rescue Squad, we work in conjunction with partner agencies Landrum Fire and Rescue, Spartanburg EMS, and Greenville County EMS. Our mission surrounds neighbors serving neighbors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This includes sacrificing our own family time and health in order to help preserve yours.

As with many worthwhile organizations who do not receive funding, purchasing equipment has always been challenging. With our total operating budget coming in under $75,000 a year, it's easy to understand why this challenge exists! Our community continues to embrace and support us to meet our needs and provide the latest technology and techniques available. Our current challenge is mission-critical, as we desperately need the resources to upgrade our ambulances. We operate three ambulances which are currently 2000, 2002, and 2003 year models--meaning the newest is almost 15 years old. While we strive to well-maintain our vehicles, this is an aging fleet that needs your help!

Here's where YOU come in...

New ambulances cost on average $160,000, but we are not asking for that!! A fundraising goal of $40,000 would allow us to purchase two "new-to-us" ambulances, that would be significant upgrades to our current fleet. Every dollar given truly does make a difference...and that difference could quite literally be someone's life...even yours!!
