On Sunday, October 4th, 2020 several members of the Putnam County Rescue Squad responded to the western portion of the county to rescue an injured dog. On arrival members found the injured Collie several hundred feet down into a very steep ravine. The rescue required over 1500 feet of rope to rig the haul system. The dog was placed into a portable dog kennel and hauled out of the ravine. The dog was returned home safely and was eating, drinking and walking around when crew members left.
Multi-Agency Search Effort
A multi-agency search effort culminated with locating a missing ATV rider after a two day search yesterday afternoon. Putnam County Rescue Squad, Putnam County Sheriff Office, THP, and others searched the area between Englands Cove, Glade Creek, and Ravenscroft. Putnam County Rescue Squad would especially like to offer our appreciation for the assistance from area residence that were able to assist efforts by guiding search teams through the rugged terrain.
The Putnam County Rescue Squad would like to thank Country Financial for the purchase of new medical gear bags and automatic blood pressure cuffs for our First Responder program. This gear will be used to replace some older gear and to allow our personnel to be prepared when responding to medical calls and to provide better care for patients experiencing medical problems. Companies such as Country Financial who decide to give back to their communities and help with purchasing equipment for the squad allows us to buy, replace old and worn equipment, and to maintain our equipment to the highest of standards. We appreciate Country Financial's support and look forward spending some time with the in the near future.
