Welcome to our brand new and completely redesigned site!  We are Southside Virginia Emergency Crew.  

Southside Virginia Emergency Crew, also known as SVEC, is a combination career and volunteer Emergency Medical Service organization serving the city of Petersburg, Virginia.  We provide emergency medical care and rescue services to the sick and injured as well as a host of non-emergent public services.  We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Although we hope you do not need us, should an emergency arise and you do, we can have a trained and highly skilled crew dispatched to you simply by dialing 911.  

We provide EMS service to the city of Petersburg, VA a population of just over 32,000 and just under 23 square miles, and occassionally mutual assistance to the surrounding counties of Dinwiddie and Prince George, Virginia.  For over 60 years, SVEC has been providing many of the same services we still provide today with the exception that we now have the latest in healthcare technology combined with professionally trained members allowing us to provide you with cutting edge medical care in one small package.  Take a look around and learn more about your local emergency crew!
