On behalf of the officers and members of the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad (SVRS), we are pleased announce the election of Ms. Kathleen Harasek to the position of Chief. Chief Harasek was elected to the position by the membership on 6 June 2019, and will complete the two-year term as Chief that was vacated by Chief Alfred Pacifico, who resigned for personal reasons.
Chief Harasek has a very impressive resume that reflects a wealth of experience and an energetic, positive leadership style. Chief Harasek is Nationally Registered Paramedic, an EMS Educational Coordinator in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and holds a number of other certifications. She has previously served SVRS in a number of leadership roles, the latest as Assistant Chief for Training.
We welcome Chief Harasek to her new position and wish her much success.
