Forest View Volunteer Rescue Squad has been named the Outstanding EMS Agency by ODEMSA. This award would not have been possible without the dedicated men and women who serve the squad each day in various capacities. We are looking forward to November when the Outstanding EMS Agency award will be nominated for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
