The North Myrtle Beach Rescue Squad is pleased to announce the 61st Annual Fish Fry & Barbecue will be held at the Ocean Drive Elementary School on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Sixty years ago, the rescue squad hosted its first fish fry and barbecue to generate the much-needed financial resources necessary to support an ambulance, supplies and staff for this unique lifesaving service that never charged a dime to the public for any services.
Today the mission is exactly the same. The fish fry and barbecue remains true to its roots. The menu hasn’t changed much, either. And the North Myrtle Beach Rescue Squad still doesn’t charge a dime to the public for their services.
What has changed is the enormous population growth in what is now North Myrtle Beach, the geographic reach of the rescue squad to include Little River and Longs and the unbelievable outpouring of support they continue to receive from the community over the years. Along the way, the all-volunteer first responders have won some pretty impressive awards, such as “Best Rescue Squad in the Nation” (EMS Magazine) and “Best Rescue Squad in South Carolina” (DHEC).
Every October, like clockwork, the fish fry and barbecue is the single most important fundraising event of our calendar. It is absolutely critical to their 2020 budget. But it still remains the best deal in town: all you can eat for $10 per person!
Stop by Ocean Drive Elementary School on 11th Avenue North in North Myrtle Beach from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26. Check out the ambulances and other rescue vehicles, visit with the EMTs and paramedics, and you might win a prize. Just make sure to arrive hungry.
