April 19-25, 2020 Is National Volunteer Week

Posted by & filed under Local and Regional Events.

It’s National Volunteer Week.

Here is a shoutout to the 400 + operational volunteers and the 100+ support team volunteers serving with the Rescue Squads of Virginia Beach and the Virginia Beach Department of EMS.

Did you know that Virginia Beach has the largest volunteer-based EMS system in the United States? Isn’t that awesome!

Our operational volunteers are on duty 24/7 responding to 911 EMS calls for help.

This wouldn’t be possible without the assistance of the support team volunteers keeping the trucks & equipment running, working behind the scenes raising funds and keeping the supply train going.

“Let’s hear it for the volunteers in Virginia Beach who are out there, doing all they can to help you and your family!”
