Monday Mention November 5, 2018

Starting our new Monday Mention with Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad or CARS. Monday Mention: CARS or Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad. 
CARS is a volunteer rescue squad with approximately 160 active members. We have been serving the community continuously since 1960. We are a member of the Virginia Association of Volunteer Rescue Squads assigned to District I. CARS operates eight advanced life ambulances (medic units), three advanced life support quick response cars (zone cars), two heavy rescue trucks (squads), a water rescue truck with two boats, a technical rescue truck, a collapse rescue trailer, a command car, a mass causality incident truck and a special events bicycle response team with support trailer. All current apparatus is owned by the department and was purchased primarily with funds raised through donations from our community.
