Community Involvement

The WRS Community Relations Committee is responsible for facilitating and overseeing our agency’s interactions with the community. The goal of Community Relations is to build relationships with our neighbors, educate the public about health and safety, facilitate understanding about what our rescue squad is and does, and to build trust between children and public safety personnel.

Community Relations volunteers attend and host a number of events each year intended to accomplish these goals, including:


  • “Ambulance Show & Tells” for elementary schools

  • Community and school health fairs

  • Annual Open Houses at WRS open to all community members

  • Open Houses & “Show & Tells” for local children’s organizations

  • Touch-A-Truck events

  • Event Standbys

  • Public Education Events


WRS is honored to serve the Town of Wise and the surrounding community, and our positive relationships with residents, schools, local organizations and local businesses are incredibly important to us. If you’re interested in involving WRS in a community event, feel free to complete the form below, and someone will be in touch with you as soon as possible. We are happy to discuss how we can help.
