Agri-Rescue Project

In 2015, the Swan Quarter Volunteer Fire Department began working on a special life-saving project. The Agri-Rescue Project began with raising funds to purchase a rescue tube, the additional necessary equipment, and the required training for a grain entrapment rescue should the need ever exist in Hyde County. It quickly became evident that there was a need to prepare for other agri-rescue situations such as tractor roll-overs, chemical spills, etc. The budget doubled from the initial $100,000.00, and it took longer than anticipated, but the project was completed in 2018.
