Rescue Squad Subscription

To the Editor:
If you live in the area, you've probably received a brochure promoting the subscription program for the Manchester Rescue Squad. I hope you will take the time to read this material. I also hope you will support the Rescue Squad by joining this annual program.

The Manchester Rescue Squad is an independent, non-profit organization that serves the towns of Manchester, Dorset, Danby, Mt. Tabor and portions of Winhall and Rupert. The squad provides emergency medical services, including advanced life support, on a 24/7/365 basis. Our professional staff of EMTs and medics makes over 1200 emergency calls per year.

The rescue squad is not a municipal organization - only 4.5 percent of our budget comes from the six towns we serve. The squad is funded primarily by medical billing for our services, charitable donations and our subscription program.

The subscription program costs only $95 per year and covers everyone in your household. As a member of the program, all of your emergency medical costs will be covered, including any insurance deductibles and co-pays. You also qualify for limited local non-emergency transportation, if deemed necessary by your doctor. But more importantly, the subscription program is our grassroots effort to gain community-wide support for our services. When you become a member, your money supports the Manchester Rescue Squad, helping us continue to provide the highest level of service to this community.

Please review our brochure and join the program today. For more information or a subscription form, visit our website at, or call the squad office at 362-1995. Thank you for your support - we can't do it without you.
