Earlier in 2020, the Chesapeake Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad added a third advanced life support ambulances to their fleet.
“We had the privilege of placing our third ambulance into service last night. It’s the first time in the past few years that we have had three ambulances in our fleet. This newest addition will allow us to reduce the wear and tear on one single ambulance while extending the life of our fleet overall! We are extremely thankful for the support of the city, our community, and the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Foundation for making this possible! Thank you to Horton Emergency Vehicles for providing another quality product! A huge thanks to our Horton rep Chuck Simpson who helped every step of the way! Our newest ride may have a lot of lights, but it’s without a doubt quite a smooth ride!” Rescue 4 Captain Mike McCracken

They serve Northampton Blvd, Shore Drive, Chic’c Beach and surrounding area.
You, too, can volunteer with the Rescue Squads of Virginia Beach. VA Beach residency is not required and the EMT training is free.
