Cedar Bluff, Wilson, Kirwin, Lovewell, Waconda(Glen Elder), Sebelius and Kanapolis Reservoir;
We also have helped in recoveries in Harlan and McConaughy Reservoirs in Nebraska.
We also have contracts with several counties for our services.
The City of Plainville financed the operation of the unit until 1978.
In 1978 the Unit became known as the Plainville Rescue Squad, Inc.
The members incorporated it into a nonprofit corporation.
We are responsible for all the finances of the operation.
Our main source of monies since 1978 has been the annual Demolition Derby at the Rooks County Fair.
