A Legacy of Service for Over 50 Years
Since our founding in 1960, the volunteer EMTs and Paramedics of the Richmond Volunteer Rescue Squad have been answering the community’s call; our mission, however, has grown well beyond responding to emergencies. Our premiere clinical and education programs, and cutting-edge technology are launching careers and developing the public safety leaders of tomorrow.
