Local rescue squad seeks new home
TEGA CAY -- The Tega Cay Rescue Squad is looking for a new place to house its equipment, including one ambulance and a rescue vehicle.
From its beginning in 1975, the rescue squad has been located with the Tega Cay Fire Department, which once managed the squad, at the fire station. However, the fire department recently received additional fire equipment, leaving no room for the rescue squad's equipment. The squad must find a place to store its equipment by mid-March.
The rescue squad, which also supports the fire department with first aid and support services at fires, also needs space for an office and crew quarters.
In the future, the squad hopes to build a two-bay facility with crew quarters and have room for fire trucks.
If anyone has suggestions or a small parcel of land and/or building that could be donated or leased, call 803-984-1526 or 704-604-0073.
