Happened upon the Ash-Rand Rescue building in Asheboro on Sunday, after a zoo visit. Found a school bus-turned-command post in the parking lot. The two-story building was chock full of rescue and EMS vehicles. (Something no longer seen in Wake County, where rescue services are nearly exclusively performed by fire departments. The exception is R.E.D.S, based in Garner in the old Garner Rescue & EMS building.)
Here’s their fleet, as depicted on their web site. Plus my photo of the “Randolph County Search and Rescue” bus. They’re also part of North Carolina USAR Task Force 7, and have a trailer and towing vehicle. Learn more about their organization at www.ashrandrescue.com.
