JRL Emergency Services is a family owned and operated business that has stood the test of time for 5 generations. Since 1917, over 100 years, the Litwak family has served Schuylkill County. From humble beginnings, JRL originated from a 1 bay garage on Center Street in Shenandoah, PA to having 3 shops in Shenandoah, Saint Clair, and Pottsville. Specializing in all auto repairs (light, medium, and heavy duty), JRL has been a staple in Schuylkill County, setting the standard for towing and recovery operations. Being WreckMaster certified operators, JRL responds from light auto accidents, to heavy duty recoveries involving tractor trailers.
