There are two rescue squads in the county that offer memberships to persons at least 16, but less than 18 years of age, Forest View and Bensley.
Adult members serve as junior advisors and monitor activities, as well as school performance of the junior members. Junior members are not permitted to pull duty past 10 pm on school nights and may only stay overnight with parental permission and in conjunction with squad policy.
Criminal Background Checks
We are the only county department who perform criminal background checks on members under the age of 18. This is based on a state law issued through the Virginia Department of Health – Office of Emergency Medical Services.
