The only station in the county maintained, funded, and run by volunteers (it does not receive regular budgeted funds from any government agency), BCCRS provides its neighbors with the highest quality fire, rescue, and ambulance services – at no cost. It employs two paramedics and taps a corps of trained, devoted volunteers that includes local scientists, lawyers, students, government workers, business owners, teachers, executives, and others. Using cutting-edge technology and operating 24 hours a day, volunteers provide rescue and compassionate care for children caught in house fires, teenagers in vehicle collisions, heart attack victims, and elderly citizens with medical emergencies. Not every day is newsworthy, but every day is an opportunity to help someone in distress – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, more than 9,600 times in the past year alone. BCCRS prides itself on "answering the call." You can too.
