The Leonardtown Volunteer Rescue Squad that serves the community compromise of the 3rd election district in St Mary´s County did not evolve overnight. This organization is managed and operated by Volunteers who are highly motivated and dedicated to their community. They are the fruit of the labor and foresight of community-minded individuals who saw a need and filled the niche. The Delozier's, Longmire's, Mattingly´s and Wood´s are just a few of the names. Written documents are somewhat vague on details and minds are a bit unclear in regards to the formation years. Most County Rescue Squads, as operated today, are reflective of observations and lessons learned from the Vietnam War. The concept of triage, treat the injury, stabilize the victim and transport to a medical facility capable of managing the trauma within one hour has proven to have merit in trauma situations.
