The Alumni Association of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad is open to all Life Members and former members of the Squad.
In 1978, current and former members of the Rescue Squad founded the Alumni Association of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad to preserve the Squad’s history, to support the operations of the Rescue Squad, and to perpetuate the bonds of friendship among long-time Squad members. Through its annual Crab Feasts, Shrimp/Oyster Roasts, and other events, the Association has raised over $250,000 for the benefit of the Rescue Squad. The Rescue Squad uses these funds for its operating and capital costs.
One of the Alumni’s most enduring projects has been the restoration in 2006 of “Rescue 15,” the Squad’s last Cadillac ambulance. The entire cost of the $65,000 restoration was borne by the Alumni Association’s members.
The Alumni encourages all former members to join the Alumni. The dues are only $10.00 per year and there are only 4 meetings per year. This is a great way for old time and former members to gather and share stories and memories as well as help the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad. Some of the Alumni’s various functions include shrimp and oyster feasts, crab feasts, breakfasts, the annual picnic, and the December holiday social.
