The rescue crew, here at Hope-Jackson, is proud of our record of service to the people in the Hope area and the southern section of Scituate. We strive very hard to maintain our skills and training so that we can give the best service possible. We have a crew of over 40 Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s) of every level, with the majority of the EMT’s either Cardiac or Paramedic certified. Our training is ongoing and re-certification is required every three years.

Hope-Jackson Rescue Division is a fully certified "Advanced Life Support" Emergency Medical Service provider. This means that we can give that "extra" level of care when you need us. We can administer several different medications and treatments depending on the condition of a patient. These conditions can range from cardiac distress, anaphalactic shock, major trauma or simple every day emergencies.

If you or a family member have a special medical problem that you think should be brought to our attention in case of an emergency, please feel free to contact us at the station.

If you or a family member take multiple medications, you should make sure that a list of the current medications is available to us when you call for assistance. To assist in this task we have available Refrigerator Cards that are used to list patient’s medical information and current medications. The cards are designed to be attached to the front of your refrigerator with a magnet. Cards can be picked up at no cost at the fire station any evening. An EMT can assist you in filling out the cards.

The fire/rescue crew responds to over 500 calls per year, in all weather, day and night. You can make our responses easier and insure that we can find your residence quickly and easily with just one simple change. Make sure that your house number is easily seen from the road when your house approached from any direction. Numbers should be at least 4 inches in height and good contrast to the background. If your house is set back off the road, make sure that the numbers are posted at the end of the driveway, visible from both directions. Day or night, when you hear the fire/rescue units approaching, either flash your outdoor lights or have someone at the end of the driveway to direct us to the right address.

Our only goal is to offer our neighbors the best, most professional protection that we possibly can.

Thank you for your support
