Through the dedication and determination of many individuals, the Squad has provided emergency services to the community as a true example of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Today, the Squad has grown to 440 volunteers. We have 4 ambulances, 2 of which are in service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Squad is licensed by the State of Florida as a Basic Life Support Emergency unit. We maintain a close working relationship with Hillsborough County Fire Rescue and we average over 5,000 emergency runs per year. It is estimated that we save the taxpayers of this county approximately 4.5 million dollars per year. Become a part of a caring community of volunteers.
