Over the summer local day cares have visited the station to learn about safety and everything that happens at the rescue squad. On August 7, we will be at the National Night Out event in Harrisonburg showing off an ambulance and our squad truck and teaching families about EMS.
The technical rescue capablities at Harrisonburg Rescue Squad continue to expand. Special Operations members have been busy maintaining our squad truck and MCI trailer, attending continuing education courses all over the country, and responding to calls to provide assistance to other local agencies.
