Ash-Rand Rescue

Swift Water Rescue

Ash-Rand Rescue has one of the few certified swift water rescue teams in the state.

Last September, the team responded to a car trapped in floodwater after Hurricane Florence. It was night, the car was 95% underwater, and the driver was barely able to hang on.

One crew member reached the driver to calm him until the rescue equipment could be set up.

When all the gear was in place, a second crew was lowered down to the man, and he was rescued without injury.

Ash-Rand Rescue is a highly trained and state certified organization providing emergency rescue and medical services across Randolph County.
