The unit has two modular ambulances in operations. It operates an extraction truck with the
Jaws of Life; hydraulic rams are chisel and other extraction equipment. A LifePak monitor and
defibrillator are included in one of the ambulances.
The Citronelle Rescue Unit formed on February 26, 1963 because of urgent needs to transport injured
and sick people from rural communities to the hospital in Mobile for treatment. Concerned and dedicated
people have worked diligently to make it happen. The grounds and building were donated. It exists from
donations of time and money now. The volunteers have gone for proper training at their own expense.
The Kiwanis Club always holds annual fundraisers to support the continuing needs of the Unit. A fee is
charged for ambulance services and some people make regular donations. Different civic organizations make
donations of supplies and sometimes money from the operation of a much needed and appreciated Rescue Unit.
