The Shapleigh Rescue Squad was established in 1980 after a group of residents determined the need for Emergency Medical Services.
Upon our inception the squad provided EMS services with a used ambulance. Since that day the Shapleigh Rescue Squad has grown into the department are today. The Shapleigh Rescue Squad is currently funded to staff two licensed providers 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Annually the Shapleigh Rescue Squad answers around 200 calls for service. These calls can range from well being checks to cardiac arrests. In 2020 the Shapleigh Rescue Squad answered 229 calls for service, which is a 20% increase over 2019.
We currently utilize a 2011 Ford Ambulance designed and built for us by PL Customs. This ambulance is outfitted with a variety of state of the art emergency medical equipment. We have a Stryker Powerload system paired with a Stryker XPS power stretcher, ensuring patient and provider safety.
