Greetings Friends and Neighbors,
The Londonderry Volunteer Rescue Squad (LVRS) is dedicated to providing compassionate emergency care that saves lives and improves health outcomes at no cost to the people who depend on us.
Our mission is to help the members of our community when they need us most – arriving with skilled, licensed emergency personnel at any time of the day or night. In 2018 the squad responded to a record number of calls, r 548, covering 250 square miles and ultimately clocking more than 5500 hours, entirely on a volunteer basis.
LVRS is committed to recruiting and training in order to provide the best emergency care possible. In 2018 we conducted an Advanced EMT class increasing the level of expertise of three current members. In addition, we ran an EMT class for 13 other people, 4 current members and 9 who may eventually join the squad.
Airway Management Training used for someone who is not breathing adequately on their own.
We want to find you when you need us. Please remember to place 911 numbers (your physical address), in your driveway: visible from the road, 4-6” tall, perpendicular to the road, seen from both directions, and preferably reflective.
LVRS depends on the generosity of donors to perform its services. If you have donated in the past, thank you: we hope you will continue your support. If you have never given before, we hope you will consider making a donation. A donation of any amount is important and appreciated.
We are offering some terrific summer and winter raffle prizes. Tickets are $3.00 each, a book of 10 tickets is $30.00. Additional tickets are available upon request and at People’s United Bank in Londonderry. You can also purchase tickets and view some of the prizes and a prize list at our website www.londonderryrescuevt.org.
Thank you for helping us help you.
