The North Mecklenburg Volunteer Rescue Squad relies upon the goodwill of the citizens of Huntersville and northern Mecklenburg County for funding to operate. While the squad does receive funding from local governments, individual donations from community members are critical to the success of our operations. Your donations allow us to replace old equipment, maintain our vehicles, undergo advanced training, and continue our day-to-day operations. We cannot provide critical services to our community without your support!
If you would like to donate funds to the squad, you can mail a check (made out to North Mecklenburg Volunteer Rescue Squad) to the address below or click on the paypal link to donate electronically:

Most drivers in Huntersville are familiar with the flashing red lights and sirens on the North Mecklenburg Rescue Squad's emergency vehicles. These devices help to alert other drivers to the presence of a rescue vehicle or ambulance en route to an emergency. When these warning devices are activated, North Carolina state law requires all drivers to slow down, pull right, and allow emergency vehicles to pass.
When a call for help comes in, many of our members respond from home, work, or school in their own personal vehicles. To help the public identify emergency responders, North Carolina state law allows qualified volunteer EMTs to equip their own vehicles with red warning lights. Several members of the North Mecklenburg Rescue Squad use these devices while responding to calls.
Remember, the vehicle you see behind you may be responding to your home or to the aid of your loved ones!
