Last night FRS had the pleasure of hosting a Meet and Greet with the Operational Medical Director for our squad and the Fredericksburg Fire Department.

Dr. Reese is a specialist in emergency medicine, and has been dedicating himself to emergency medical response in our region for several decades. It is under his medical license that EMTs and paramedics operate in Fredericksburg.

Dr. Reese has been very progressive in EMS which enables us to provide advanced pre-hospital care to the citizens of the Fredericksburg area. We look forward to additional meetings and training with him.

A belated congratulations to Mike Capra for earning his Virginia Paramedic certification! Paramedic certification coursework is the equivalent of an associate's degree, and requires hours of clinical and field experience. It's even more of a challenge when trying to complete it during COVID restrictions.

We are glad to have you, Mike, as part of our team!

Four things you can do to support your teen’s mental health

As your child becomes busy in life, they can become overwhelmed with their busy life very quickly as they get older. Help your child to make a difference in this world!

Do you know that national statistics show that about 8-9% of high school-aged kids have attempted su***de in the past 12 months? That is about 160 kids at our area's larger high schools. The scary part is we, as adults, don’t know about most of them. Our society has a mental health crisis only made worse by the pandemic. We need to help our kids. Our schools need more counselors and social workers. I’ve seen how hard they work to get resources for these families but they need to see the kids and talk to them to know they need help.

Show your teen love and care, while looking after yourself

General information

In 1939, the formation of the Fredericksburg Rescue Squad was conceived by Mr. William H. Carper. On February 5, 1940, Mr. Carper was honored as the first Captain elected to the Fredericksburg Rescue Squad & the rest is history... Back in 1940, when 22-fledgling Fredericksburg Rescue Squad volunteer members had to purchase their own first-aid kits, squad transportation was afforded by a donated "1933 Dodge 1-ton panel truck" from Sunshine Laundry and they were without a building, it seemed as if their venture was predestined to fail... Then along came the local Kiwanis Club who generously donated various pieces of equipment. The Kiwanis donation was soon followed by a $300 donation from the Fredericksburg City Council. Strong public support was received from the conception of the Fredericksburg Rescue Squad and remains today. As always, we continue to welcome your tax-deductible contributions. As one of the earlier volunteer rescue squads in the state, Fredericksburg Rescue originally ran squad calls from Washington, DC to Richmond, VA; and from the waters of Virginia's Northern Neck to the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. Fredericksburg Rescue Squad's distinguished history includes assisting other squads throughout our great Commonwealth during their formative years; including Spotsylvania, Orange, Reva, Ladysmith, Virginia Beach Rescue Squads and more. For over 70 years, the Fredericksburg Rescue Squad continues to remain an indispensable, time-honored member of our community. Our volunteer members have defined our history & our character. The obligations placed upon them are legendary and without question, have contributed to our status and reputation making us one of the finest, senior rescue squads in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our tradition continues today with a diverse membership of high school students to college students; construction workers to business owners; stay-at-home parents to retirees; law enforcement officers to firefighters and nurses; mechanics to engineers; government employees to public administrators; military personnel to educators; and the many others who unselfishly dedicate their time & services to the Fredericksburg Rescue Squad. The Fredericksburg Rescue Squad's legacy is a reflection of the community we serve and a tribute to our continued "Reputation for Excellence Since 1940"
