ABOUT OCEAN PARK VOLUNTEER FIRE AND RESCUE SQUAD
Founded almost 70 years ago at the request of the Ocean Park Civic League the department was first staffed by volunteers of the Ocean Park Men’s Club. Following the formation of the Ocean Park Fire Department, the Ocean Park Women’s Club began to staff the stations ambulances. Today the long volunteer tradition continues with the Ocean Park station staffed by men and women volunteers from all walks of life from students, workers, retirees, and business people to our active duty military! Members of the Ocean Park Rescue Squad (Rescue 1) provide emergency medical services to the citizens of Virginia Beach 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The members are Commonwealth of Virginia certified Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics who provide Basic and Advanced Life Support emergency medical care. Volunteers man ambulances and respond to the City of Virginia Beach EMS 911 calls from the Ocean Park Station and the First Landing Station along the Shore Drive and Great Neck corridors. In addition the Ocean Park station continues to serve as the hub of Ocean Park community activity. Events such as Explorer Scout meetings, dance classes, civic league meetings, condo association meetings, woman’s club meetings, parties and fund raisers are held there.
Ocean Park Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad is a 100% volunteer and registered 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, which relies on your tax free donations to keep this life saving service running and purchase new equipment. The Rescue Squad does not use any tax money and does not bill patients for treatment or transports to the hospital.
