History
 

Rescue was formed in 1965 to provide Fire-Rescue and Ambulance  services to the residents of Elmont. Prior to the company being formed, the ambulance response was provided by dedicated department members from all companies, known as the "Emergency & Relief Squad." Department members with the best training of that time-(advanced first aid)  responded with the ambulance. Members eventually were required to be EMTs or AEMTs. The First Aid Squad-responded to an assortment of medical emergency situations.

In 1988 the  the ambulance service was transferred to an EMS Squad. Heavy Rescue then concentrated on firefighting along with rescue operations at auto accidents and other emergencies.
