About Alamance County Rescue Unit

Alamance County Rescue Unit is an all-volunteer, non-profit, non-taxed organization providing high-quality emergency services to Alamance County and surrounding counties. The units were originally established in 1956 by five Graham firefighters who saw the need for specialized rescue services including drowning recovery, search and rescue, and both vehicle and machinery accident rescue. Throughout the years, Alamance County Rescue has worked closely with local fire, police, and EMS agencies to assist when called upon. The unit continues to provide a wide array of specialty services including wilderness search and rescue, swift water rescue, trench rescue, and large animal rescue.​
