On July 1, 2019 the Virginia Department of Health Office of Emergency Medical Services announced the June 2019 Rescue Squad Assistance Fund Grant recipients. Wise Rescue Squad requested funding for a LUCAS 3 CPR Device and (3) iPad 11" Pros to replace our aging toughbooks. The total grant amount awarded is $15,000 and WRS is required to pay an additional $5,000 toward the purchase of the equipment. Wise Rescue is currently seeking the matching funds at this time. Our next grant submission will be to add a new ambulance to provide an increased level of service to our community and provide for a unit to be moved to backup status so if we encounter mechanical issues with our units we will still be able to provide the community with emergency response. That announcement is expected in January 2020. More details will be provided to the public on that submission as we get closer to the deadline.
