What's in a Name?

Vote for a the new name of the Manchester Rescue Squad

From our first day in 1964, we have been called the Manchester Rescue Squad. So WHY would we change it? Simply to accurately reflect our mission and say who we are without any confusion.


We serve all the towns of Manchester, Dorset, Danby, Mt. Tabor and lower Winhall, not just Manchester alone.  We are not affiliated with the Town of Manchester.  We are an independent, non-profit organization.  But we do rent space in the same building as the Manchester Police and Fire Departments.


Please help us choose a new name by casting your vote.  The final choice will be announced September.
