This past year has been an exciting one for the Virginia Tech Rescue Squad. CPR and EMT classes have returned to campus and are being organized by the VTRS. Funding has been supplied to purchase new vehicles and expand the level of service provided by the squad. This news, along with annual statistics and membership reports, are summarized and published yearly in the Annual Report. The squad hopes that this document will increase community awareness of the extensive services provided by the Virginia Tech Rescue Squad.
The annual report is being published in both color and black-and-white versions. They will be distributed around the campus to the administration and the college departments.
