Founded in 1973 the Bridgewater Volunteer Rescue Squad began with one simple mission in mind, to serve the needs of others in the worst moments of their life. More than 40 years later, that mission has not wavered. Our volunteer members respond to calls for service in our community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in every type of weather and time of day. As in all things, time has changed many aspects of our agency, but our dedication is timeless.

No matter what role is our volunteers fill, the fact is that they are critical to our success. Another component of equal importance are the community members who contribute to our agency. The support of our community allows us to ensure that the highest level of care can be rendered to anyone who calls on our agency.
