Service Area

 

Pamplico Rescue Squad is located on the lower east side of Florence County, near the area of the red balloon on the map. The Rescue Squad covers all of Florence County School District 2 with full ALS ambulances. The ambulances back up and run as secondary units to a Florence County EMS unit stationed here. When that unit is moved out of the area due to heavy call volumes elsewhere, we revert to being the primary ambulance provider. Hwy 378 runs through the southern end of our service area. It is a major source of auto accidents during the summer as it is a heavily traveled route to Myrtle Beach. There is a lot of area for hunting and fishing along the Pee Dee River, and hunting accidents are common. Hannah-Salem-Friendfield Fire District, Howe Springs Fire District, South Lynches Fire District, and Johnsonville Fire District are all very active volunteer fire departments that provide us a great deal of assistance in working accidents and first response calls.
