BVRS participates in many large events throughout the calendar year. One of our biggest events that we host annually is our Open House, which is held in the spring. With this event we allow the community to come into our station and see how we operate on a day to day basis and we also do several demonstrations. One of our most popular demonstrations is the car cutting held this day, where members who are certified in extrication demonstrate how to safely stabilize a car and then cut the car to help rescue someone. At this event we also do CPR demonstrations and educate children on how to call 911, all while giving ambulance tours and providing lunch for all who come.
The second big event is Wheels and Wagons held at First and Main, where we have ambulances, a crash truck, a six-wheeler and responders open to the public. This event is a great time to come out and see all of our vehicles and meet our members!
BVRS is a key in providing standby coverage for Blacksburg High School with their soccer and football standbys each year. BVRS also covers every Virginia Tech Football home game and has two crews on the field to provide care to those injured on the field. Throughout the year BVRS covers numerous standbys and participates in all events held by the Town. BVRS participates in the International Street Fair, Fork and Cork, Summer Solstice, Independence Day Festivities, Steppin' Out and many more!
