Our members had a great time at Community Day at William Woodruff School yesterday! They were able to show the students our newest vehicle in our fleet, our first responder vehicle. EMS-55 is used to respond rapidly to emergencies or respond to emergencies when our duty crew is out on another emergency call. EMS-55 has much of the same equipment as our ambulance but is not transport capable. We hope the students enjoyed the presentation as much as we did!
Our House Run
Our crew had a blast standing by at the Our House Run yesterday! Four miles and a few patients later, we hope everyone else enjoyed the day as much as we did. We always have a great time hanging out with the community and providing care when needed.

Cub Scouts at William Woodruff Elementary
Cub Scout Lion Den Pack 268 had a very special meeting with the BHVRS at William Woodruff Elementary School. Our members participated in an “Animal Kingdom” adventure which taught the kids what to do in the event of an emergency. Even the parents got involved! Everyone had to match up the emergency — a broken arm or scraped knee — with the correct first aid item. The highlight of the meeting was touring the ambulances and learning how the electronic stretcher worked.
Many of our volunteers are working parents with school-age children. As parents and EMTs, we love teaching our youngest members of the community about important first aid skills. Ever thought about joining the BHVRS? To learn about our flexible hours and opportunities email: email@example.com.
