If you live in Martinsville or the Washington Valley section of Bridgewater and you dial 911 for a medical emergency, we will be dispatched to help you. We always have a duty crew on call ready to respond to emergencies. We also have members throughout our area equipped with life-saving equipment who can respond directly to your home in the case of a life-threatening emergency. Direct responders can often reach your home within 5 minutes of your 911 call.
We regularly schedule community CPR training sessions. We advertise the training sessions in our annual fund drive mailing in March. We have certified instructors who teach the American Heart Association's "CPR for Family and Friends". At least twice a year we hold "BLS Healthcare Provider" recertification sessions for squad members and those in the healthcare profession who need professional level training.
