LVRS is a completely volunteer ambulance and rescue service, providing free advanced life support (ALS) and transportation to anyone in our 255 square mileage coverage area. Our mission is to help the members of our community when they need us most – arriving with skilled, licensed VEFRs, EMRs, EMTs, AEMTs and paramedics at any time of the day or night. We rely on our members for everything we do, and are always looking for people to help.
Currently, we are looking for drivers. Drivers need to be CPR certified (we will provide the training) and are responsible for safely driving the ambulances to scenes then to the hospital, helping to move and load patients, helping to get the ambulance ready for the next call and washing the ambulance after a call. Being a driver is a great way to help people in our community.
For questions about joining, please contact our leadership or any of our members. We will be happy to talk with you!

We have 12 Vermont EMS First Responders on the Londonderry Volunteer Rescue Squad.
The Vermont EMS First Responder (VEFR) is the newest level of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The VEFR course and level of certification are designed to introduce new individuals to EMS and provide additional basic first responders for local communities. VEFRs complete a 16-20 hours corse that learns a limited scope of practice including CPR, AED, bleeding control, assisting with an epinephrine auto-injector for anaphylaxis, assisting with a prescribed metered dose inhaler (rescue inhaler) with an asthma attack or COPD exacerbation, or administering naloxone. VEFR personnel’s role will vary by agency and may include community first response, event standbys, community demonstrations, or acting as a driver for a licensed ambulance crew.
