Community Medic Services
Special Event Coverage
Provides medical coverage of many large public gatherings each year. We may offer EMS coverage for some smaller events if given ample notice. These services are customized based on the event and the need for coverage.
Junior Rescue Cadet Program
Youth Development Program
Community medic program is a relatively new and evolving healthcare model. It allows paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to operate in expanded roles by assisting with public health and primary healthcare and preventive services to underserved populations in the community. The goal is to improve access to care and avoid duplicating existing services.
Some rural patients lack access to primary care and use 9-1-1 and emergency medical services (EMS) to receive healthcare in non-emergency situations. This can create a burden for EMS personnel and health systems in rural areas. Community paramedics can work in a public health and primary care role to address the needs of rural residents in a more efficient and proactive way.
Rescue Operations Division
Pembroke Rescue Squad offers many specialty rescue services and operations. These rescue services range from Crash Rescue Team, Search & Rescue, Swift Water Rescue , SCUBA Dive Rescue Team, Agriculture Rescue, Confined Space Rescue as well as drone pilots for special rescue operations.
Firefighter rehabilitation is the process of providing rest, rehydration, nourishment, and medical evaluation to members who are involved in extended or extreme incident scene operations. Pembroke Rescue provides these services to our rescue teams as well as to other departments upon request.

Recognizes the need for this initiative to reach out to North Carolina’s youth and engage them in non-operational roles within our squad. Reaching out to people when they are young has long-range effects and encouraging youth to take part in the emergency services is extremely beneficial to local communities.

Allowing youth to gain insight and interest in becoming long-term members of the emergency services
Increasing awareness among youth about volunteering and supporting the fire and rescue services
Providing the squad with additional help in accomplishing non-firefighting or non-emergency tasks
Leadership development for America’s youth who will be tomorrow’s leaders
Educating parents and mentors on the importance of encouraging volunteerism
