VB Rescue Foundation


The mission of the VBRSF is to support an independent and vital emergency medical care and transport system – one of the largest in the country that relies predominately on well trained, skilled, and dedicated volunteers.

Hire Vets Now

For the first time VB Rescue participated in a military recruitment event at Oceana military base with Hire Vets Now, since joining Virginia Values Veterans.

We were able to talk with transitioning and retired military about volunteering with VB Rescue. This event was a great success, and we can’t wait to continue our involvement in future Hire Vets Now events.

Thanks to our volunteer Anna Russell, Assistant Squad Commander with Davis Corner who helped promote VB Rescue.
