The Blount County Rescue Squad (BCRS) is a private, not-for-profit organization tasked with responding to various emergencies in Blount County, Tennessee. The Blount County Rescue Squad is staffed by trained volunteers and responds to medical emergencies, provides aid and support services to other departments serving Blount County, participates in search and rescue operations, and assists with other needs when called upon. In a collaborative effort and agreement with American Medical Response, the Blount County Rescue Squad staffs Highway 129, infamously known as the Tail of the Dragon by motorcycle enthusiasts, during the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. This curvy, two-lane stretch of highway encompasses the Tennessee-North Carolina border alongside the Appalachian Mountains through Deal’s Gap. Due to the hazardous conditions, this highway presents to motorists, accidents frequently occur. To reduce response times and increase survival rates, Blount County Rescue Squad personnel dedicate their time to establish their presence on the Dragon.
