We are located in Henderson, TN, off Highway 100 East behind Chester Farmers Co-op. We have 23 active members on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our mission is to serve our fellow citizens. We are a non-profit organization run 100% by volunteers and funded largely by donations. We do not receive compensation for our services, nor do we charge for them. We are always willing to help wherever we may be needed.

A little history...

The Chester County Rescue Squad was organized and chartered in 1974 under the supervision of Billy Coatney, who served as the squad’s first Captain, with the help of 6-8 other local people. Coatney had served on Paris-Henry County Rescue Squad before moving to Chester County and saw a need for such an organization here.

There was no “official” building to meet in or store equipment in at the time. They were given permission to meet in the old jail house and stored their equipment in the old City Hall.

The present building was built in 1978 by the Building Trades class of CCHS on property leased to the squad by the City of Henderson. Over the years, the squad has operated with about a dozen vehicles, most of which were donated by the Civil Defense, Guinn Bros. and Chester County. The squad presently has 2 equipped extrication units, 2 water recovery boats and 25 members on the roster, including 3 lifetime members and 2 Jr. members. img

Our areas of duty include:

Vehicle extrication

Land search/rescue

Water rescue
