SVEC New Website Goes Live!

Southside Virginia Emergency Crew is proud to announce the launch of it’s redesigned website. Over the last few months, members of SVEC have come together to plan, design and execute a new web presence that is more modern but also more functional as well.

Although this was a team effort and concept, the task of designing and building of this new site was undertaken by Kenneth Evans who is a career member of SVEC and serves as the E-Services Administrator. SVEC is proud to have such talent on our team and this serves as proof that anyone can be of value to an organization such as ours.

Although our site is now live, there are several components that we are still working to bring to you. While we are making these final touches in the background, we invite you to explore the rest of our website. If you feel so inclined, you may use the form located on the “Contact Us” page to make suggestions.

We hope you enjoy our newly redesigned website and that you continue to check back to see our continual updates, blog posts (Crew News), career and volunteer opportunities (Recruitment) and more.

SVEC Reminds Drivers to Slow Down, Move Over

On December 28, 2019, one of our medic units sustained moderate damage after being involved in a traffic accident. The unit was on the scene of a medical call and members of the crew were inside the ambulance providing care to a patient when the ambulance was struck.

We are extremely fortunate that our providers were not injured and the patient receiving care at the time was able to continue being treated and transported safely and without delay by another medic unit who responded to the scene.

Southside Virginia Emergency Crew would like to use this incident as a reminder to slow down and move over for emergency vehicles and emergency scenes. EMS, Police and Fire scenes can pop up anywhere and that includes our streets and highways. It is vitally important that drivers operate their vehicles in a safe, controlled manner. This means slowing down at active emergency scenes and moving over to allow First Responders the room they need to provide patient care, suppress fires, clear hazards and ultimately keep you safe.

Please, make a resolution to keep your local first responders safe. SLOW DOWN, MOVE OVER. It’s the law!
