These appeared on the crash truck of the Clayton Rescue Squad in the 1970s. See more classic photos, as scanned by Clayton Area EMS Asst. Chief Jason Thompson. Love that old Dodge van.

You know, between what Wake EMS photos are floating around, the many scrapbooks at Garner EMS, these Clayton EMS pics, and the stuff that Travis Loy has, there’s probably a picture book that’s waiting to be made.

When i left Cary back in 1985, there was a HUGE box of pictures. I have seen numerous pictures at the old Knightdale Rescue station. It might be hard to find some Fuquay-Varina, Northern Wake, or Wake Forest Rescue stuff (I am sure it is in someone’s closet somewhere). And then to find pictures from Beacon, Raleigh Ambulance, Bright FH, and I several of the other funeral homes that I know of that ran ambulances (Overby, Sugg, Apex, Lewis, and I think the one in Zebulon did), there is a book to be made.

Of course, some of us who would really like to see it done don’t have the time (working 2 1/2 jobs, going to school, etc).

I agree… I’d love to see a picture book that focuses on EMS & Rescue history in our region.

Sad part is…I remember some of those old vehicles, particularly the crash truck (when it was an open bed), the old dodge van, and the van that is pitcured on the old NC OEMS manual. I used to have several copies of it but my ex thought they were trash, so….
