Thank you for your interest in joining the Randolph Rescue Squad. We are a non-profit volunteer organization that relies on the commitment of its members to operate.
The Randolph Rescue Squad offers three different types of membership that accommodate anyone interested in joining:
- Adult/Active membership
- Junior Program
- Auxiliary members
Interested individuals first need to fill out an application that can be found below. From there, a member of our team will be in contact with information on setting up an interview. Following successful completion of the interview and application process, members will be sent for fingerprinting, background check, physical, and a drug test. Once cleared to continue, the member will be enrolled in our training program. No previous training or experience is required, and all necessary training will be provided to you at no cost.
The New Member Class consists of 6-7 classes over the course of 2 weeks. The member will be trained in CPR, First Aid, Ambulance operations, Ambulance driving, and more. These classes are run twice a year, one in the spring and one in the fall.
Upon completion of the new members’ class, the member will be assigned a duty night and will begin riding under the direction of that night’s Crew Chief.
Interested members should review the following requirements before applying.
- Must be available and able to commit to a minimum of one night-time duty shift each week, Monday – Friday 7:00 PM – 6:00 AM, or Sunday 6:00 PM -6:00 AM. A shift time may be adjusted to coordinate with your work schedule pending the Crew Chief’s discretion. Once assigned to a duty crew, this will become your permanent crew. **
- And one 36-hour weekend shift Saturday 6:00 AM – Sunday 6:00 PM once every 6 weeks. These weekend shifts are often divided up amongst the crew to spread out the ride time.

Do you have some time to volunteer but you don’t want to ride on an ambulance? Then the auxiliary membership may be for you. Auxiliary members are members of the squad who assist in a nonoperational form.
Auxiliary members assist with fundraising, building chores, administrative activities, and much more. These members are as essential to the success of the squad as our operational riding members.
