Welcome To The Kent and Queen Anne’s Rescue Squad!

The Kent and Queen Anne’s Rescue Squad is located in historic Chestertown on Maryland’s scenic eastern shore. From its modest beginnings in 1961 when one vehicle and a handful of volunteers ran 73 calls to 2016 when our volunteers responded to over 1700 calls, the Kent and Queen Anne’s Rescue Squad is the primary ambulance organization in Chestertown and outlying rural areas. Volunteers are of all ages and come from all walks of life; most have extensive training and experience in the emergency medical services. Many members are also trained in firefighting, hazardous materials operations, rescue operations, dispatch, and scuba diving.

The Rescue Squad’s current fleet includes three ALS-equipped ambulances, one rescue truck, two boats, a special operations trailer, an all-terrain vehicle, two utility vehicles, and an ALS equipped chase vehicle. The spirit of the Kent and Queen Anne’s Rescue Squad is alive and well in its volunteers, who selflessly dedicate countless hours in service to their community.
