Fayette County Technical Rescue Team
A Volunteer Regional Rescue Squad Serving the Mid-South Since 2010
The Fayette County Technical Rescue Team is an all-volunteer Regional Rescue Squad that provides volunteer services not only in Fayette County but all across West Tennessee, North Mississippi, and East Arkansas. Our 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. More importantly, our Team is the only Active Unit Member of the Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads in Fayette County, Tennessee.
When requested, our Team is always available to supplement and assist the local emergency response agencies of the mid-south by primarily providing additional assistance for: Search & Rescue Incidents, Water Rescue Incidents, Dive Rescue Incidents, Rope Rescue Incidents, and Other Unusual Incidents. In addition to the above, our Team believes in community outreach, community education, and assisting the citizens and local emergency response agencies all across the mid-south area. To that end, we regularly train with other rescue squads, fire departments, law enforcement agencies, and other emergency response agencies all across the mid-south.
Since our inception in 2010, we have completed 225+ activations, deployments, and operational readiness exercises all across West Tennessee, North Mississippi, and East Arkansas. Our Team has literally spent thousands of volunteer hours involved in training and operations all over the mid-south!
Our Team is not a government entity and therefore does not receive any federal, state, county or municipal government funding. Our Team is solely funded through the generosity of supporters, sponsors, and private grants and pays for all of its own expenses, including substantial general liability insurance for the Team and workers compensation for its Team Members, so that it can be available to respond anytime to virtually anywhere it may be needed without any cost to the taxpayers. More importantly, 100% of all contributions go directly to our non-profit Team and are tax deductible as allowed by law since our Team is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
