WVRS provides 100% volunteer coverage on overnights and weekends. Our volunteer shifts are not supplemented by paid personnel, which is a key differentiator between other Montgomery County stations. On average, each volunteer dedicates roughly 80/hrs per month at the station.

WVRS is a world-class volunteer station with one of the largest call volumes in the State of Maryland. It is the station to be at to experience a high-energy diverse assortment of emergency medical, fire, and rescue calls.
