The ever-increasing needs of our community for emergency medical care gemerates a constant demand for new members. Volunteers are always welcome to help staff our ambulances and provide for the many needs of our community.
If you wish to help but are not eager to go out on ambulance calls you are welcomed as an Associate Member.
We offer the following types of memberships:
Active Members: provide hands on medical care to our community. A majority of our members at the Rescue Squad are active. We provide the necessary training.
Reserve Members: provide hands on medical care to our community. Reserve members contribute fewer hours of service, but have a limited role in squad management. In order to join as a reserve member, you must already have a valid Maryland certification.
Junior Members: are those who want to provide patient care, but are between 16 and 18 years old. They must maintain a C average at school and have parental permission to participate.
Driver Only Members: handle all driving when they are on calls; they do not perform any patient care. They must be at least 25 years old and have a good driving record. If the choose, active drivers may also be trained as First Responders.
Associate Members: support the squad in ways other than riding on the ambulances such as fund raising and social events that are held each year.
Financial assistance is always welcome. We are volunteers. The countless hours that we devote to Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad and our community are cost-free. However, the vehicles and equipment that we must procure and maintain to deliver the cutting edge health care technology that our community deserves become more expensive with every passing day.
Donate your talents and skills. To conserve sparse funds, we maintain our two buildings and all our vehicles ourselves. If you have a talent such as carpentry, painting, vehicle maintenance, etc., we would sincerely appreciate your efforts.
