We belong to the Adopt A Highway program. Usually once a year sometimes twice a year several members get together early on a Saturday morning and pick up trash along Jackson, Kane, and Jones Streets in Gate City.
We are a member of both the Virginia Association of Volunteer Rescue Squads (VAVRS) and the Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads (TARS).
Our Board of Directors meeting is held the first Tuesday of each month. Our regular Business meeting is held the second Tuesday of each month. The third Tuesday of each month is our training class.
Due to most of our members having other jobs and limited funding, we were forced to start billing our patients in 2002 because the volunteers could not keep 24 hour coverage for our county and we had to employ personnel for this coverage. We have four rotating twelve hour shift crews, two EMT's per truck.
Today we have both paid employees and volunteer members. We strive to provide quality care to the sick or injured citizens of Scott County 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
We also play bingo on Thursday and Saturday as an additional fundraiser. Our bingo hall is located across the street from our crew hall and it's address is 115 Park Street. Our bingo games start at 6:30 pm but we start selling cards at 5:00 pm. All proceeds from bingo help support the operations of the crew and maintenance of our buildings and vehicles.
