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 one ambulance, 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.

"As a Craig County native and having family serve as members of this wonderful volunteer organization, I feel a responsibility to the members. It is an honor to work with these folks."
"I've tried to assist the community however I could, and several years ago Jim Cady asked me to serve on the Board. When I replied I wasn't knowledgeable about the CCR-EMS, he said maybe so, but you know about people. So I used the complement to become more informed and have appreciated the guidance of other board and squad members to learn the value of our services."
