Dear fellow VBEMS Member,

Many of you have asked about memorial arrangements for Chief Edwards. A number of activities are in the works. Most notably, I hope you all saw that City Council took action last night to rename the EMS Headquarters and Training Center in honor of Chief Bruce Edwards. I can think of no better way to honor his service and his legacy.

City flags are flying at half-staff, and EMS Department badges should be draped through Saturday. Deputy Chief Hundley is the Department’s primary point of contact and liaison with Chief Edwards’ family.

The visitation will be Friday (1700-1900) at H.D. Oliver Funeral Apartments, Laskin Road Chapel. Parking is in the rear. Visitors should bring a face mask to wear. Bruce’s family will likely not know your name and has asked that you please introduce yourself upon greeting them and passing along your condolences. Class A uniforms are encouraged as Chief Edwards will be in his dress uniform. Please remember that we are under COVID restrictions for large gatherings. While we all have fond memories and stories with Chief Edwards, folks are encouraged not to congregate for extended periods of time. We will have Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Honor Guard personnel present to assist in ushering everyone through the viewing.

If weather and calls permit, Nightingale will conduct a flyover of the visitation on Friday night around 6pm.

The funeral is Saturday (1100) at the Church of the Holy Family and will be live streamed from their website at https://www.holyfamilyvb.org/. The service is private with a limited number of seats for EMS (all non-church parishioner EMS) personnel. If you are interested in attending, please contact Deputy Chief Hundley. He is building a wait list to attend (there are no guarantees). We encourage you to watch the live stream.

If you have any questions, please contact Deputy Chief Hundley.

08/22/2020

We are sad to report that Chief Emeritus Bruce Edwards passed away this morning. Chief Edwards joined the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad in 1967. He became the Executive Director of the Emergency Coronary Care Program in 1973, leading an effort to deploy the first volunteer ALS providers in Virginia. In 1975, he became the leader of Virginia Beach EMS at the head of the newly created Office of EMS. He continued to build EMS and our volunteer rescue squads to departmental status, laying the foundations for the effective organization that it is today.

Chief Edwards was actively involved in regional and state EMS activities, taking the lead in creating many of medical control and regulatory systems that we rely on every day. In addition to multiple tours on the EMS Governor’s Advisory Board, he ultimately served as the Chairman of the Virginia Board of Health.

Bruce was promoted to Chief Emeritus in 2016. In that capacity, he remained active as an advisor and mentor over the last four years, making him the longest serving member in the history of the VBEMS organization. We have lost a great public servant and a true giant in EMS. Please keep Bruce’s family in your thoughts and prayers. All Department of EMS badges will be draped for the next 5 days.

Great tips for staying safe in the heat. Thank you for sharing, Plaza Volunteer Rescue Squad Station 16!

#CityofVABeach #EMS #volunteer #heatexaustion #heatstroke #staysafe

It's gonna be a hot one!!!

With a heat index of 100°+ our providers are working hard to help keep the citizens of Virginia Beach safe this summer. Our EMTs and Paramedics are trained to deal with heat related emergencies based on level of severity.

But as much as we love to see our supporters, we definitely do NOT want to see you on a call! Remember to drink plenty of water, seek shade often, and listen to your body to avoid exhaustion...or worse!!

IMPORTANT PLEASE SHARE: In the wake of recent steep rises in COVID-19 cases throughout both the City and the region (cases in people ages 20-29 increased by nearly 250% in VB since the end of May), we are calling on residents, local businesses and visitors to adhere to established safety measures including wearing masks in indoor public spaces. If this trend continues, the Governor may reinstate restrictions.

#CityofVABeach #EMS #volunteer

Another #ThrowbackThursday. This week, we're headed to the #PleasureHouseRoad station sometime in the 1960s. Back then, Chesapeake Beach Vol. Fire & Rescue volunteers met weekly to inspect and clean the fire engines, ambulance and other rescue equipment to make sure it was ready for the next call. Additionally, they would train on the equipment to maintain skills proficiency. Today, our checks are performed by our crews on their duty day before shift and skills proficiency is completed through online and in-person training with our partners Virginia Beach EMS.

Thank you for highlighting Plaza Volunteer Rescue Squad Station 16 member Kelsey Lai and our unique volunteer-based EMS system!

#CityofVABeach #EMS #volunteer #IBuildWeBuild

The safety of our country goes hand in hand with the safety of our community. I want to share our next “I Build, We Build” video, which features our fellow shipbuilder, Kelsey Lai. Her story is one of compassion and staying calm under pressure. Kelsey serves as an EMT on the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad – the largest volunteer rescue squad in the country.

Kelsey uses her strong problem-solving skills as a volunteer and engineer, adapting to changes amid COVID-19.

Like Kelsey, I hope you never underestimate the important role you play in defending our freedom and the incredible impact your kindness has on our community.
