Rescue squad celebrates 30 years of serving community

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -The Greene County Rescue Squad will be celebrating its 30th anniversary on Sunday.

The event will feature an open house and a flag dedication.

The rescue squad is a volunteer based non-profit organization that works solely on donations. Curtis Davenport, chief of the rescue squad, said they get a variety of calls, from car accidents to missing persons.

He also said they have enjoyed serving Northeast Arkansas for 30 years. :It's great. We feel like we have a lot of guys with a lot of experience," said Davenport. "We have people with 10 plus years, and some with 20 plus years, and that's unusual for a volunteer department to keep people that long and to keep serving the public the way we do."

The event will start at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Davenport invited the community to stop by and visit.
