Please bear with us as we rebuild our website.
Providing service to our community since 1960, the Nansemond-Suffolk Volunteer Rescue Squad is one of Southeastern Virginia's premiere emergency medical services organizations. NSVRS is a volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) agency located in the heart of downtown Suffolk, Virginia. We serve an area of approximately 380 square miles out of a total of 429. Chartered in 1960, the Nansemond-Suffolk Volunteer Rescue Squad has grown from a one ambulance squad housed in the back of an old auto repair shop, to a modern state of the art Emergency Medical Services Agency.
No longer is EMS viewed as “just an ambulance ride to the hospital”, Nansemond-Suffolk has continuously met the ever changing demands in the field of emergency services. Emergency medical response, community events and festivals, coverage of television and movie filming operations, community teaching and safety programs, and public speaking and awareness programs, NSVRS has met these challenges head on with pride and professionalism.
At NSVRS volunteerism is alive and well. Supported by dedicated and highly trained volunteers, we offer around the clock coverage of our City. Basic and Advanced Life Support providers continuously train to provide those in need with the highest caliber of pre-hospital care available. State of the art diagnostic equipment, highly skilled providers, and a real sense of caring for those that we respond to come together to make NSVRS a top notch professional service for those we serve.
