[ARCHIVED] Historic Marker for Winston-Salem Rescue Squad To Be Unveiled

A local historic marker commemorating the Winston-Salem Rescue Squad will be unveiled at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 23, at the former Rescue Squad building at 2955 N. Liberty St., Winston-Salem.

The Winston-Salem Rescue Squad was organized in 1937 as a volunteer agency to provide ambulance service and assist at such emergencies as automobile accidents. It was the first such agency in North Carolina and became a model for rescue squads throughout the Southeast. It merged with Forsyth County Emergency Medical Services in 2009.

Speakers at the unveiling will include Mayor Allen Joines; Janet Shill, a member of the Historic Resources Commission; and Robert Myers, the former chief and president of the board of the Winston-Salem Rescue Squad.
