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!
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!
Our 1st lieutenant, Joe Plocinski, and a cadet member, Nicole Segalini, spoke at Westminster Presbyterian church about joining the squad and what it meant to them personally. We are always looking for more members, so if you have any interest please reach out for more information!
The squad was on standby at the BH5K. We had a great time being out with the community to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 5k! The BHVRS was also presented with a very generous donation from Dr. Pat Smith, thank you so much for your support!
We would like to extend a very big thank you to Feathers II for their very generous donation to the BHVRS! We hope that you are very successful in your new location! Thank you, again, for your generosity!
