Neighbors Saving Neighbors
The Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad is made up of volunteers. We are professionals and retirees, teachers and students, business owners and employees. We are...neighbors in our community who want to give back, start a career, or do something meaningful and exciting. We are almost 200 members strong, answer about 14,000 911-dispatched calls every year, and are part of a dynamic, volunteer-based EMS system of ten volunteer squads. VBVRS operates two independent rescue stations every hour of every day: Station 14, located at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, and Station 8, located off of Old Donation Parkway in the Great Neck area of Virginia Beach. We believe it is our tremendous privilege to be supported by our community, and we are honored to be able to reach out and help our families, friends and neighbors in their hour of need.
