SALEM, N.Y. – (May 15, 2023) – The Salem Rescue Squad would like to thank the Mary McClellan Foundation for its generous grant in support of the Squad’s emergency medical services operation. The grant was used to obtain:

ZOLL X Series Monitor/Defibrillator at less than 12 pounds, the X Series is about half the size and weight of other full-featured devices. Its large, bright screen allows for simultaneous viewing of four traces, all 12 ECG leads, or static and dynamic 12-lead views on a “split screen”. The device also incorporates the latest, most advanced and most complete monitoring capabilities, including “gold standard” Masimo rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry and Welch Allyn’s Rapid NIBP technology to improve accuracy and reliability. ZOLL’s open architecture makes it possible to send event files from the ambulance to the hospital while the patient is in transit. 

"Salem Rescue Squad President Vincent Smith said we are so grateful for the generous support of the Mary McClellan Foundation.  These funds have allowed us to keep pace with equipment requirements important for the quality patient care we provide."

We would also like to remind everyone to make sure that your 9-1-1 street address is clearly visible from the road so that we can locate you quickly during an emergency.  Keep an up to date list of your medical history, medications and dosages, and any allergies for yourself and family members.  

For more than 50 years, the Salem Rescue Squad has provided emergency medical services to citizens and visitors in Salem, Hebron, Jackson, East Greenwich and Rupert.  The Squad relies primarily on dedicated volunteers to serve as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), drivers and assistants in answering approximately 500 calls per year.  Salem Rescue Squad is in search of new members who can be a part of its team and contribute to its critical mission of providing emergency medical care to the community. Flexible schedules are easily accommodated due to our 24/7 schedule. For more information about Salem Rescue Squad call 518.854.7199 or email
