VB Rescue is a 2023 American Heart Association Mission: Lifeline Gold agency and received a Target: Heart Attack Honor Roll designation?

Not only did VB Rescue receive this award from the AHA, we're the only agency in southeast Virginia and one of nine agencies in the Commonwealth to do so!

Our volunteer and career members provide exemplary patient care in the field each and every day. We're on the cutting edge of pre-hospital emergency medicine, and we're only getting better 👊

Congratulations to Paramedics Michelle Stephenson-White, Aric Ware, Kevin Fleet and Natalie Darais on earning their RSI certification!

Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is an advanced skill used in the field when regular intubation of a patient may be difficult. Through RSI, our providers sedate and temporarily paralyze the patient so that an airway can be established. Our Paramedics must complete special training and gain needed field experience before they can be certified to perform RSI, and all of our RSI-certified Paramedics undergo continuous training.

This technique is just another example of our providers offering the highest quality of patient care possible to those in need.
