Rescue Day 2022 Canceled
With a potentially historic hurricane making landfall in Florida and expected to make its way north this weekend, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad is canceling Rescue Day, its annual open house scheduled for this Saturday. In addition to ensuring the safety of members of the public who would be attending the event, our members need to be prepared for any potential impact of Hurricane Ian on the community. While we are disappointed to cancel what would have been our first Rescue Day since 2019, we look forward to welcoming you this holiday season for our annual Christmas tree sale and seeing you next spring at the Rescue Run 8k. And, of course, we hope the weather will cooperate and we’ll see you next fall for Rescue Day 2023.
If we do experience severe weather in our community, remember:
Be prepared for possible power outages.
If a street appears flooded, Turn Around, Don’t Drown.
Stay away from downed power lines. Call utility companies to report any downed wires or power outages. If there is immediate threat to life and safety, call 911.
