WEVRS is now the Richmond Volunteer Rescue Squad
After 54 years, our name now better reflects the community we serve: the entire City of Richmond.
The geography of the Richmond area has changed significantly since we were founded as the West End Volunteer Rescue Squad in 1960. As time has passed, we’ve grown to serve every single neighborhood in the City of Richmond, and it’s time that our name reflects that fact.
We’ve changed our name. We’ve changed our vehicles. We’ve changed our logo. But one thing hasn’t changed: the group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to serve our community when they need it the most.
