Welcome to the home of Eastern Pines Rescue-EMS! Founded in 1982 as Eastern Pines Rescue Squad,  the EMS division of Eastern Pines Fire-Rescue-EMS Inc. has served with distinction and honor ever since. Located just east of Greenville, NC, approximately 30 volunteers and 8 part-time paid staff proudly provide the nearly 19,000 citizens of eastern Pitt County with continuous Paramedic level Emergency Medical Service 24 hours a day. In addition to EMS response, some members are trained in technical rescue as NC Rescue Technicians and respond in conjunction with Eastern Pines Fire-Rescue to provide crash, rope and water rescue, as well as back up the EMS crew with additional medical manpower at crashes where technical services are not needed. Roughly, our response district includes all points east of the City of Greenville and south of the Tar River to the Pitt-Beaufort County line, and north of NC Hwy 43 and east almost all the way to NC 102. Communities served include Eastern Pines, Simpson, Grimesland and Black Jack. In addition to responding with Eastern Pines Fire Rescue, we also respond with all other “district three” fire departments, as well as mutual-aid responses with all other Pitt County stations and the City of Greenville Fire/Rescue-EMS. Our volunteer staff is comprised of people from all walks of life, including business professionals, entrepreneurs, college students and medical professionals. All personnel are certified by the State of North Carolina Office of EMS at various levels including Medical Responder, Emergency Medical Technician, EMT-Intermediate and EMT-Paramedic. In addition, many of us are also cross-trained in technical rescue, firefighting and hazardous materials, and are members of EPFR or other Pitt County fire departments. Thanks you for visiting.
