Locals are invited to celebrated with BCRS on Saturday
On Saturday, July 27, the current members of the Benton County Rescue Squad (BCRS) will hold an open house to celebrate the organization’s 50th year. All are welcome to stop by the BCRS headquarters from 2-4 p.m. to celebrate the occa- sion with some of Benton County’s most dedicated volunteers.
“We would like to invite the entire community to come to our open house!” said Captain Dwayne Presson. “Come out, tour our facilities, view our equipment, and meet many of our members. We are all proud of this momentous occasion and look forward to hosting our community.”
The organization began on July 22, 1969, when a group of men formed the BCRS with a mission to help people in need during emergency situations and render first aid. Although the squad members may have changed over the years, today’s members still share that vision and the desire to serve others in their community. Read next week’s edition of The Camden Chronicle for more information about the group’s history and coverage of the open house.
The BCRS headquarters is located at 295 Factory St. in Camden, near Plunk Funeral Home. For more information about the upcoming event, visit the Benton County Rescue Squad page on Facebook, call 731-584-8900, or contact any BCRS member.
