Roseboro Rescue and EMS, Inc. was organized in September 1973, with a chartered 33 members and operated out of the Fire Department until 1984 when a new station was built. The first vehicle was a 1971 Ford. After many hours of renovating, it was converted into Roseboro's first crash and rescue vehicle This was an answer to a great community need. In 1991, the department purchased a 1991 Ford crash truck.
The department has grown to a staff of 60 active members and provides EMS, Rescue and DIVE services. In 2009 the department became home of the Sampson County DIVE Team which provides underwater rescue and recovery services for local, regional and state agency requests. EMS providers are trained and certified up to the EMT-Intermediate level. Rescue personnel have amassed hundreds of hours of specialty training to provide extrication services for motor vehicle accidents, high angle rescue and recovery as well as water rescue services.
