The London-Laurel County Rescue Squad exists to provide life-saving rescue services to the citizens and visitors of Laurel County.
The mission of the London – Laurel Rescue Squad and its members will be to respond to calls for assistance with incidents involving but not limited to auto accidents, search and rescue operations (including canine operations), drowning / near-drowning, high/low angle rope operations, water rescue/recovery (including surface and subsurface operations), swift water rescue, trench rescue, building collapse, farm-related rescues, confined space incidents, off-road incidents.
The London-Laurel Rescue Squad is announcing that this October we will continue the tradition of our haunted house fundraiser. While we aim to be as scary as possible it is still family friendly. Children under 5 years old may need to feel extra brave to make it all the way through. “Over the 11 years I have been doing this I have seen younger children breeze right through and large, grown men be legitimately scared.”- Lieutenant Nathan Kirby.
Starting October 6th at 8 p.m. we will open our doors. Tickets are $15 per Adult and $10 kids 12 and under. A “Fast Pass” will be a $30 option that puts someone at the front of the line so they can’t skip waiting. We plan to open every Friday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. at the rescue squad building right behind the London city fire department. The address is 913 Fire Rescue Drive.
This has been our biggest fundraiser for over 25 years and helps to pay for equipment and training used in emergencies. We really depend on this to be a success to be able to continue providing quality emergency services with modern equipment. Last year had a successful turnout and we hope that this year will be even better.
We invite all emergency response agencies in Laurel County to train with us on any of our in-house training nights.
