Why should you join the Volunteer Rescue Squads of Virginia Beach?

    • To take advantage of free EMT through Paramedic training
    • To get valuable, hands-on experience that can give you a leg up in many careers in public safety and the medical field
    • For that “lights and sirens” adrenaline rush
  • To become part of a dedicated group that gives back to the community in a way no other organization can – by saving lives

No matter your motivation, the Volunteer Rescue Squads of Virginia Beach need YOU. Our volunteers save taxpayers millions each year and ensure that pre-hospital emergency medical care is free to our city’s residents and visitors. It’s a win-win.
