Another Milestone for the Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By Past Chief Kim Adams
July 1, 2011

July 1, 2011 marked yet another milestone for the Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad, an increase in our response area to better serve the citizens of the California area. Lexington Park VRS will begin the coverage of Emergency Medical Service to the northern part of California now being covered by Hollywood VRS. The expansion of service will include from the intersection of Route 4 to Airport Road (including Wildewood), Route 4 north to the Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge and Route 4 south to Dement Lane.

These changes are being made in cooperation with the EMS department currently covering the area because Station 38 (on Buck Hewitt Road in California) is staffed 24/7, and is closer to the area being served. We anticipate a total call-volume increase of about 10% with the added area.

LPVRS is a big department but this expansion highlights the need for additional volunteers, especially those with availability during the day. Community members who are interested in helping may contact us with any questions by emailing info@lpvrs.org or may fill out the application for membership on line. Lexington Park VRS has different membership types that are available:

Active Members: provide hands on medical care to our community. A majority of our members at the Rescue Squad are active. We provide the necessary training for FREE.

Reserve Members: provide hands on medical care to our community. Reserve members contribute fewer hours of service, but have a limited role in squad management. In order to join as a reserve member, you must already have a valid Maryland certification.

Junior Members: are those who want to provide patient care, but are between 16 and 18 years old. They must maintain a minimum of a C average at school and have parental permission to participate.

Driver Only Members: handle all driving when they are on calls; they do not perform any patient care. They must be at least 25 years old and have a good driving record. If they choose, active drivers may also be trained as First Responders.

Associate Members: support the squad in ways other than riding on the ambulances such as fund raising and social events that are held each year.

Please feel free to stop by either of our Stations, Great Mills Road or Buck Hewitt Road, and meet the volunteers that serve you.
