Whereas, first established in 1964, the Pageland Rescue Squad serves the vital role of providing emergency, general, and technical rescue services to maintain the safety of their community. Access to high-quality emergency vehicle extrication and rescue services improves the survival and recovery rates of those who experience motor vehicle crashes; and


Whereas, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) operations are firmly established as a key component of the medical care continuum and EMS practitioners serve a vital role in saving lives from sudden cardiac arrest and trauma, in transporting patients to well-equipped hospitals, and in showing care and compassion to their patients in their most difficult moments; and


Whereas, the Pageland Rescue Squad is managed entirely by volunteers, providing vital public safety services to the residents of western Chesterfield County. Pageland Rescue Squad provides training, instruction, and service opportunities for individuals interested in helping their neighbors; and


Whereas, western Chesterfield County is fortunate to be served by such dedicated volunteers who give their time to the Pageland Rescue Squad and engage in hundreds of hours of specialized training to enhance their lifesaving knowledge and skills; and


Whereas, natural disasters and pandemics do not change the fact that emergencies occur every day, and Pageland Rescue Squad volunteers continue to put themselves on the line to respond to vehicle rescues, medical emergencies, falls, accidents, and all other emergency types; and


Whereas, it is with great pride that the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives recognize the sixty years of service Pageland Rescue Squad has provided to their community. Now, therefore,


Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:


That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, honor the Pageland Rescue Squad for serving a vital role in keeping the residents of western Chesterfield County safe and congratulate them on the occasion of their sixtieth anniversary.


Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Squad Captain Jay Rivers of the Pageland Rescue Squad.
