Donate Now to Save Lives in Wheaton

Last year donations purchased a new ambulance, provided training, and equipped our volunteers. In 2018 our 135 EMTs, paramedic, and firefighters volunteered over 90,000 hours of service and responded to over 10,000 emergencies. This high level of service was made possible by donations. Patients and families in Wheaton and Kensington need your help. They will call 9-1-1 thousands of times in 2019. The Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad urgently needs your support this year. Please click on the DONATE NOW button. Your donation will ensure lifesaving care and equipment for your neighbors. WVRS is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.  Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  


Each member volunteers his or her own time one night a week from 6:00 pm until 6:00 am, spending the night at the station, and 24 hours every fourth weekend. WVRS is staffed entirely by volunteers at all times except for weekdays, 7:00 am until 5:00 pm, when staffing is provided by both volunteers and career staff from the Montgomery County Department of Fire and Rescue Services. The Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad provides service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year at no charge to those served.
