LONDONDERRY VOLUNTEER RESCUE SQUAD
DIAL 911 FOR EMERGENCIES
The Londonderry Volunteer Rescue Squad (LVRS) is a paramedic level ambulance and rescue service serving the towns of Landgrove, Londonderry, Peru, Weston, Winhall, Windham, and Stratton. We also serve Andover Ridge.
Our mission is to help the members of our community when they need us most – arriving with skilled, licensed Vermont EMS First Responders (VEFR), Emergency Medical Responders (EMR), Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians (AEMT), and Paramedics at any time on day or night.
We have over 50 volunteer members and operate two fully stocked advanced life support ambulances and a heavy duty rescue truck, operated by Londonderry Technical Rescue, that is equipped with vehicle extrication tools and mountain rescue equipment. We also have a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) trailer that has supplies for large emergencies. We cover 255 square miles of mountainous terrain, and average 500 calls per year. Last year our call volume was up substantially to 698 calls.
Whenever possible we offer our patients a choice of transport to Springfield Hospital, Rutland Regional Medical Center, Southern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend, or Brattleboro Memorial Hospital. The DHART helicopter service is available to transport serious trauma and medical patients when weather conditions allow.
