Volunteers sought - Resource Specialists support RVFD

There is a need for residents of the Verde Communities who are interested in serving as a volunteer resource specialist for the Rio Verde Fire District. These volunteers assist firefighters on emergency calls, and the program is

offering new opportunities to those who are interested. The resource specialist program has been in place for a number of years with at least one person scheduled to volunteer for each 24-hour shift. Over that shift they may find they are needed to assist with emergency medical calls to help firefighters and offer assistance to a patient’s family.

In the case of a fire or an auto accident, the resource specialist may be called upon to help with traffic or spectator control. The volunteers come from varying backgrounds including nursing, teaching, physicians, emergency animal care and even retired firefighters. They are also available to distribute fire and safety educational information during community events. Residents living within the Rio Verde Fire District – Rio Verde, Tonto Verde or Vista Verde – are welcome to sign on for this important duty. The volunteers all share one common bond – it is in their nature to help. For more information contact Denny Meyers at 471-3213 or Firefighter Doug Blazer at 471-2304.
