Twelve years ago the VA Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad, Rescue 14 stepped forward to fund a recruiting video to help recruit additional staffing for the eleven Volunteer Rescue Squads serving Virginia Beach [Knotts Island, N.C. included in VB matrix].
Our volunteer numbers were down to less than 500 men and women staffing ambulances and or in training.
This was in the early years of the VBRS Foundation, prior to the Foundation’s full commitment to supporting all ten of the Volunteer Rescue Squads [Knotts Island R.S. removed from VB EMS response matrix].
Step forward to 2012, The VBRS Foundation working in conjunction with the VB Dept of EMS supports all ten of the volunteer rescue squads with a full time recruitment coordinator, grants, retention programs and scholarships.
Today, over 1100 men and women staffed ambulances, zone cars, squad trucks, marine rescue boats, bikes, ATV’s 24/7 with an additional 200+ in training.
Volunteers Save Lives.
Training is free.
