Richmond Rescue won the prestigious Ambulance Service of the Year award from the State of Vermont Department of Health today. They have recently improved their organizational management resulting in a major turn-around with response time over past years and their in-service days are now approaching 1,000. Volunteer numbers and participation has increased significantly since 2012 and they have been successful in getting effective and stable financial agreements with towns in their service area. They have begun a Media Outreach program to raise public awareness of the role of EMS in the community and are on the cutting edge by being first in-State with adoption and implementation of new protocols. The Richmond area offers a wide variety of response environments from mountain trails to interstate, creating an interesting, challenging and attractive climate for younger members. Please join me in congratulating the squad for their accomplishments!
