Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
([ca. 1990?])

Rescue squad


Rescue Squad
On May 2, 1939, at the meeting of the Town Board, Mr. Donald
Dailey, president of the local Red Cross chapter, informed
the board that the Red Cross chapter decided to purchase a
pull motor provided that the Fire Department and the Town
Board would contribute to the purchase of the same. The
Board took the matter under consideration and at a later
meeting decided to contribute toward the purchase. The
Fire Department was contacted and all agreed to contribute.
The pull motor was then purchased by the local Red Cross
chapter and turned over to the Rescue Squad for their use.
Some charitable donors bought an ambulance and gave it to
the Rescue Squad for their use.
In 1950, the Town purchased a rescue squad truck for the use
of the department. Members are trained in all phases of
advance first aid and are on call any time of the day or
night, just as the fire department is also.
