The Outdoor Experience
We are thankful for The Outdoor Experience and their recent donation to the Rescue Squad’s High Angle Rope Rescue Team.
This donation, totaling over $2,000, will help our team affect the rescue of many who will need our services over the lifetime of the rope and storage bag.
Pictured are Rope Rescue Team Captain Eddy Haynes and Sawyer Campbell, of The Outdoor Experience.
Sawyer and store owner, Heather Call, held a special giveback day following the March 3, 2020 tornado. After overhearing a conversation about equipment being used and some damaged during the response, Heather and her team hosted a giveback event, donating the store’s proceeds for the entire event day to the Rescue Squad. It is partners like The Outdoor Experience, Heather, and Sawyer that help the Rescue Squad have the equipment needed to help those in need. Thank you to all those who made a special trip to shop and purchase that day in support of our mission. You can learn more about The Outdoor Experience on their Facebook page, Twitter @theoutdoorexp, and their website: www.outdoorexperienceonline.com

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.

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.
