The Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad took the streets of the community this weekend, participating in numerous events in the area.
The day started out with the Squad’s “Pancakes to the Rescue” fundraiser in Cascades, where participants were able to partake of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, drinks, and, of course, pancakes, all served by members of Sterling Rescue.
Later in the day, we had the pleasure of spending some time with the residents of the Ashby Ponds community in Ashburn. During the event, we met with residents and shared with them the mission of our organization and answered any questions they had. Last month, with the opening of the Gloucester Parkway bridge, Kincora Station (Station 35) now proudly serves the residents of this community. We are looking forward to great partnership.
Moving back to Sterling, our members participated in the 2nd Annual Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) STEM event at the Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC). During this event, participants were introduced to pre-hospital emergency services and to some of the equipment used on an Advanced Life Support ambulance. Sterling Rescue enjoys a great partnership with LCPS and NVCC in supporting and promoting their emergency medical and fire training programs.
The last event of the day took us to the Countryside community of Sterling where we got to meet many members of the community at their Fall Festival. It was a pleasure to meet everyone there and connect with community.
Look for Sterling Rescue to be out in the community over the coming weeks, as we partner with the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company for our annual Fall Open House as a part of SterlingFest and at the Cascades Fall Festival later in October. Thanks for your continued support!
