Rescue College - June 2019
Even heroes need training!

Save the Date!


 


Save the Date!


We need to support this Bill. We are losing too many First Responders due to careless drivers. By getting this passed we hope it will save the lives of those that save lives.

Under the proposed legislation, House Bill 1911, not moving over would be considered reckless driving.

Delegate Chris Peace (R-Hanover). who sponsored HB 1911, is also sponsoring a memorial license plate for Lt. Clark that would remind drivers to move over.


VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS' AND RESCUE SQUAD WORKERS' SERVICE AWARD PROGRAM


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.
