Members of the Blacksburg Volunteer Rescue Squad invite you to join us as we celebrate the final day of EMS Week 2018 at our annual Open House event on Saturday, May 26th, 2018.  Stop by our station located at 1300 Progress Street NW, Blacksburg – at the corner of Progress St. and Patrick Henry Dr. between 1:00 – 4:00 pm.

“Open House is something we look forward to every year.  It’s our chance to open the doors and invite our community in to learn what we do and teach them how they can be a part of that effort,” said David English, Chief – Blacksburg Volunteer Rescue Squad.  “We will have fun activities and demonstrations set up for all ages and we look forward to meeting more of our neighbors and their families.”
