Committed to saving lives and protecting the wellbeing of all Craig County residents, Craig County Rescue - EMS dedicates itself to providing exceptional emergency medical services through skilled volunteers, innovative training, and community engagement.
Founded in 1968 as the Craig County First Aid and Live Saving Crew, the rescue squad merged with Craig County Emergency Medical Services, Inc in 1998 to form Craig County Rescue - EMS. We are a 100% volunteer agency proudly serving all of Craig County with Emergency Medical Services. We are a dedicated team across all levels of emergency medicine from Emergency Medical Responder to Paramedic. We currently operate two ambulances and have a team of emergency personnel stationed throughout the county to quickly provide assistance before an ambulance is able to arrive. We cooperate with county emergency services, and under the guidance of our Medical Director, Dr. Susan Osborne, DO, to provide service to the citizens of Craig County. Our team works tirelessly to ensure that we are always ready to respond to emergencies and provide the best possible care to those who need it. We are proud to be a vital part of our community and are grateful for the opportunity to serve and protect those who live and work here.
