Tonight at graduation Councilman Michael Berlucchi said, “you’re not going to be paid but you’re still professional” which is a testament to the quality of education our volunteers receive through Virginia Beach EMS’s Training Academy. Each VB Rescue operational volunteer is a professionally trained provider with national certification (NAEMT). Congratulations to the graduates of BLS Academies 45, 46, 47, 48, 49 & 50!! See you on the streets!

We caught up with Nicole at Kempsville Volunteer Rescue Station 19 to thank her for spreading the word about VB Rescue! She’s been a Volunteer EMT providing FREE, professional, pre-hospital care to our community for 2.5 years and now that she’s convinced her son to sign up, it’s a family affair! #weareVBRescue #NeighborsSavingNeighbors #virginiabeach

Our City’s 10 Volunteer Rescue Squads have been doing more than just saving taxpayers money… they’ve been saving lives for over 70 years. You can, too!! No experience necessary, training is provided. VBRescue.org

Last year, more than 9,000 City volunteers served 777,784 hours, which equates to $22,197,973, or 3.69¢ saved on the real estate tax rate. During FY 2021, the City also reduced overall energy consumption by 6% and utilization per square foot dropped by 9.9% on buildings with more than 5,000 sq. ft., saving more than $340,000. These are just a couple of examples of how the City is working to provide quality services and meet residents’ needs in a fiscally responsible way. To learn more about the City’s 2021 accomplishments, visit https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/communications-office/citypage/Pages/2021-Responsive-Government.aspx.

We're here for you, but we'd rather you not need us. Stay safe out there Virginia Beach! #VBRescue #snowday #NeighborsSavingNeighbors

REMINDER: No sledding is allowed at Mount Trashmore. Sorry, we know it's tempting, but the park is closed and being monitored. Why? To put it simply, safety and liability. Years ago, the last time sledding was permitted, there were numerous injuries, several of them quite serious and EMTs spent hours rendering first aid and transporting people to the hospital. #Jasper
