Caring Contact

Every month, the squad focuses on a different aspect of our work for a training session. Usually, these trainings focus on a particular skill/ set of skills or type of call we may encounter, but this past month we focused on stress management and how to help each other out after a tough call. The Caring Contact recently started a class specifically for first responders and the BHVRS was the first squad to participate. They put on an excellent class and it was a great way to learn about helping each other when things get difficult and also helping our patients during some of the worst days of their lives. Thank you very much Caring Contact for teaching us about this incredibly important aspect of our job!

Thank you!

Two seventh graders from Columbia School met our crew at the squad with cookies and a very nice Thank You for your Service card. We want to extend a huge thank you to Victoria and Vivian, and their nanny Melanie for taking the time out of their day to come stop by and thank us for our service. We love serving our community and little things like this make it even more worthwhile!

Leah’s Lemonade Stand!

Today, this amazing girl, Leah, had a lemonade stand and all of her proceeds were donated to the BHVRS! We are so appreciative of her efforts to help us! She was able to come down and present her donation to us before our business meeting and take a tour of the ambulance. Thank you so much, Leah!
