FCTRT Completes 8th Year of Service to the Mid-South

The Fayette County Technical Rescue Team recently held their Annual Holiday Party celebrating the completion of their eighth year of volunteer service to the mid-south. By way of background, the Fayette County Technical Rescue Team is a Regional Rescue Squad that has been in existence since 2010 and provides volunteer services not only in Fayette County but all over West Tennessee, North Mississippi, and East Arkansas. Their Team is the only private and sanctioned volunteer Rescue Squad in the mid-south that is solely dedicated to technical rescue and is comprised of experienced and highly skilled volunteers who donate their time not because they have something to gain but because this is something they believe in.

Since their inception in 2010, the Team has completed over 125 activations, deployments, and operational readiness exercises from Dyersburg, Tennessee to Byhalia, Mississippi and everywhere in between. The Team has literally spent thousands of volunteer hours in operations all across the mid-south during the past eight years.

At their Annual Holiday Party, the Team also announced their 2017 Member of the Year – Travis Skelton – who was awarded the prestigious award for outstanding service. The Team also announced the new sponsors and supporters from 2017 who will join over 600 other sponsors and supporters who have previously provided financial and other assistance to their volunteer Team that is entirely self-sufficient and self-funded through the generous donations of individuals, businesses, and private grants.
