Looking for a meaningful way to make a difference in our community?
Join South Branch Emergency Services and be part of a team that saves lives!
No experience is necessary - if you have the will to help, we will show you the way. Training is free for volunteers.
South Branch was formed in July 2020 with the merger of Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad and High Bridge Emergency Squad - two organizations with long histories of providing essential medical and emergency services to the community. On January 1, 2022 the Hampton Emergency Squad officially became part of the South Branch family. Joining us now gives you a unique opportunity to learn from and serve with volunteers who have an extraordinary amount of experience, yet make your mark and help shape traditions with a new organization.
There are many ways to serve, and volunteers are needed in all categories:
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) provide immediate care to the ill and injured and transport the patient to the hospital. You don't need to be a current EMT. Training can be provided in one of our 3 EMT classes held each year.
Rescue Associates rescue people from life-threatening or hazardous circumstances, such as being trapped in a vehicle after an accident.
Water Rescue Associates use specialized skills to rescue people during water-related emergencies, such as boating accidents or floods.
Cadets are our youngest volunteers, ages 16 & 17. Cadets receive much of the same training and serve in many of the same ways as our other volunteers. They can quickly become full-duty members at age 18.
Associate Support Members are people over the age of 18 who have the desire to serve in a non-emergency way. Opportunities include community education, fundraising, and events.
