Fayette County Technical Rescue Team Receives Prestigious Honor from Governor Asa Hutchinson

FCTRT ProclamationOn August 19, 2016, the Fayette County Technical Rescue Team received a very prestigious honor from Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. In particular, the Team was recognized for their volunteer efforts all across the mid-south region by an American flag being flown in their honor over the Arkansas State Capitol.


The FCTRT is a Regional Rescue Squad that provides volunteer services not only in Fayette County but all over West Tennessee, North Mississippi, and East Arkansas.  It is the only private and sanctioned volunteer Rescue Squad in the mid-south that is solely dedicated to technical rescue and is the only Active Unit Member of the Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads in Fayette County.


The Fayette County Technical Rescue Team is not a government entity and therefore does not receive any federal, state, county, or municipal government funding so that it can be available to respond anytime to virtually anywhere it may be called without any cost to the taxpayers. The volunteer Team is solely funded through the generosity of mid-south agencies and foundations; businesses and corporations; current and former elected officials; notable and community leaders; as well as residents from Fayette County and all across the mid-south. More importantly, all contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law since the Team is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
