The 83rd VAVRS Conference will be held September 2017--Virginia Beach

Each year the Association hosts a conference in the last week of September, for learning new techniques through medical seminars, enjoying competition and participating in educational and social activities. The event offers VAVRS members the opportunity to have input on the function and mission of the association during business meetings and election of officers. The convention hosts one of the largest EMS product shows on the east coast, featuring vendors of EMS related equipment, supplies, vehicles and clothing.



This Service Award Program for Volunteer Firefighters and Rescue Squad Workers (VOLSAP) was created by state statute, specifically § 51.1-1200–51.1-1211 of the Code of Virginia, to provide a mechanism by which the state could facilitate optional retirement savings for volunteer firefighters and rescue squad workers throughout the Commonwealth.

Group Seeks Donation of an Out-of-Service Ambulance
A small training center in Rappahannock County, is in the process of being set-up in cooperation with Rappahannock County Fire and Rescue Companies and their 911 office, to do EMT Basic Life Support training as well as Certified Nurses Aide, Personal Care Aide and Medication Tech training for our county residents.
A nice article about our vision appeared in the local newspaper last year:  http://rappnews.com/2015/05/14/rappahannock-university-seeks-a-degree-of-promise/141805/
Our non-profit, www.rappu.org, has identified a location and is working with a local architect to lay out the space.
We would like to acquire an out of service ambulance to put into the training facility, and would appreciate your help in locating one. 
Sincerely, Doug Schiffman, Director of RappU, 540-987-8299
