EMS only 15 miles away. Greenville County eventually moved to UHF,
and when FCC regulations allowed EMS VHF repeaters, the system was converted.
It is referred to as channel 1.

For many years, this was the only Pickens County VHF repeater
channel for local government/EMS/Rescue use. It was originally located on
Woodall Mountain, but was moved to the present 911 site when the Woodall
Forestry tower was taken down. The move improved coverage east and north of Pickens, but coverage to the Clemson/Central area is less than before. All county services make use of this system and it becomes congested during severe weather events.
The four Pickens County Rescue Squads operate under the County Emergency Management
office. Their trucks carry extrication equipment, first responder kits, AED's,
and rope rescue equipment. The squad's missions include EMS backup, search and
rescue, and vehicle extrication. Lifting assistance during daytime hours is
also provided to the public. The units are sited near the towns in the county. The stations are staffed with volunteers.
