Moving up! 2023 Graduates and Advancements

Share This Post

Let’s recognize our 2023 Paramedic and Emergency Medical Technician course graduates, and those who have completed the rigorous post-school training and evaluation to be released as independent providers in Loudoun County!

Sterling Rescue volunteers are trained and certified to the same standards as Loudoun County Fire and Rescue career personnel. First, operational members complete training as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), becoming certified as an EMT at the National and State level. After the schooling, they complete additional practical training. This includes being evaluated during the performance of actual emergency calls, under the supervision of experienced providers. After meeting all requirements, they may be released as Attendants in Charge, qualified to independently lead an ambulance crew and provide support to the community. After serving as an EMT, members can advance to the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) and Paramedic levels, with additional schooling and practical experience.

Here are the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad members who have completed these milestones so far in 2023:
