Don't Let Your Guard Down

By Vice President Chris Schoon
March 30, 2021

Many of us have our COVID 19 vaccines, but we still must keep our guard up. Not everyone has or wishes to get the vaccine. Precautions still should be taken especially with larger group settings. Mother Nature has teased us these mid- March days with sunshine and 60-70 degree days. More people are out shopping, exercising and congregating.
I am looking forward to expanding the CPR and First Aid classes to more than 2-3 students. Not knowing the future makes it difficult to plan for any community events. The Squad cannot have anyone touring our units yet. We can let the kids look inside, but not get up in them and touch equipment. We have boxes of bike helmets for the kids but they need to be fitted, when it is appropriate. Our Squad training goes on but in smaller numbers.

On March 16th at the Stafford County Board of Supervisors meeting, a Proclamation recognizing March as Women's History Month and to honor Stafford Women, recognition was given to women in the Courts, Sheriff's Department, Commonwealth Attorney's Office, Fire and Rescue, and County Government. Patricia Copeland, Chris Schoon, Jayne Toellner, and Angela Wilhelm from our squad were included in the Proclamation. To give you an Idea of their dedication and commitment to the Squad, to Aquia Harbour and to the Stafford Community, these women have a combined total of 100 years of volunteer service. As officers they have served as President, Rescue Chief, Vice President, Admin Lt., Training Lt., Membership Secretary, Recording Secretary and members of the Board of Directors. Some years they held more than one position and they still helped staff the ambulance.
Included are some pictures of our Fire and Rescue Leadership.
A big "Thank you" to some of the Women who served in Leadership positions before us and pioneered the way in Stafford County: Charlotte Crismond- Brooke Fire and Rescue, Sylvia Sullivan, Mt. View Volunteer Rescue Squad, Diana Wills, Rockhill Volunteer Rescue Squad. They have been and are all role models for us all.

Please visit our website for more information about us and information on joining. If you are already certified as a Virginia EMT, EMT-I, or paramedic the road to volunteering is pretty easy. We can always use new members. How to Volunteer and much more is on our website www.ahvrs.org
