WE ARE A CITY OF HEROES.
An incredible fact about our city is that for over 60 years, Virginia Beach has preserved a system whereby the majority of those who serve as emergency medical rescue personnel do it *AS VOLUNTEERS.* Roughly 95% of the 1,000 people who actively “run rescue” — driving the different ambulances you see across the city of Virginia Beach, tending to emergencies that include car accidents, illnesses, injuries and tragedies such as Friday’s event — are doing so on their own time, unpaid, and out of the kindness of their hearts. When our neighbors, colleagues, friends and family are in their most vulnerable times of need, these heroes, who are college students, teachers, bankers, business professionals, entrepreneurs, retired military, etc., answer the calls for help, and are an active force of people demonstrating what this city is truly about. This is A CITY OF HEROES.

The Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Foundation offers its deepest condolences to those affected by Friday’s tragedy at the Municipal Center. Our Foundation’s mission is “To support an independent and vital Virginia Beach volunteer rescue system.” We stand resolute in supporting Virginia Beach’s volunteer rescue squads, which are all a beacon of pride for our amazing city. And it is just as apparent as ever, that all involved in assisting others during this emergency last Friday – the VBPD, VBEMS, and VBFD, as well as the citizens inside Building 2, are truly the pride of Virginia Beach and exemplify what it means to serve your community. Virginia Beach will be defined by how we, as a people, answered the calls for help. Virginia Beach EMS

We will not be defined by this, but rather by how we responded to the call for help. #virginiabeachstrong

Virginia Beach has suffered a tragedy with the shooting at the courthouse complex, and your first responders, Virginia Beach EMS, Virginia Beach 911 Dispatchers, Virginia Beach City Police Department, Virginia Beach Fire Department and Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office quickly responded to the scene.

In the words of VBVRS member Mike Rydberg, training and commitment to an ever evolving world require us to be on our very best game for these high risk, low frequency emergencies.

And in the words of City Councilman Aaron Rouse, this will not define us.
