    Check it out NOW!


Your rescue squad provides emergency medical services and community health programs to the folks who live in the northern, still mostly rural, half of Botetourt County, Virginia. It's an area loved by residents and visitors for its peace and quiet. But it is also an area far from hospital emergency rooms and that presents unique challenges to the members of your squad.

To meet the challenges, your rescue squad utilizes three main strategies. First, and most important, we conduct community outreach health and safety projects designed to keep you in good health. You'll learn more about these in the section called "Your Health." Second, your squad deploys its ambulances and first responder vehicles throughout the area. Units are currently located in Eagle Rock, Glen Wilton and Oriskany. You'll learn more about this in the section called "Your Squad." Thirdly, your squad conducts frequent training aimed at expediting patient care and transport including rapid transport by helicopter. You'll learn more about this training in the section called "Training."

This is your squad and we need your help. Folks who can run calls during the day are particularly needed. So if you're a retiree in reasonably good health, please look over the section called "Join the Squad." And don't think you are too old. One of our active squad members is 70 years of age. The squad also needs donations to fund its community health and safety outreach projects.
