Donating to BVRS


Our call volume increases every year. In 2017 alone, there was a 7.8% increase from the previous year.

Increasing call volume means a larger crew, more equipment, and a greater demand on our current resources. Donations help to bring on new members, fund trainings, restock our ambulances, and so much more. 


The Blacksburg Volunteer Rescue Squad is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.  donations are tax deductible!


Stats are great. This matters more...

"You are my guardian angels" - Elizabeth

"Thank you for caring about my life" - Kline

"They were prompt, pleasant, and competent" - Charles
