The Greater Manassas Volunteer Rescue Squad (GMVRS) is a mix service of paid and volunteer staff. We have several openings in the volunteer areas. The openings range from Auxiliary Staffers, who provide support services throughout the year, to full blown Emergency Technicians, who run calls and provide medical care to our community. Typically a volunteer who wants to participates on the calls must run one night a week and one weekend duty tour every six weeks.
If you are interested in volunteering please either give us a call (703-935-2883 Ext 3215) or stop by the station to pickup an application and discuss the possibilities with a crew leader or a line officer.

Our junior team typically under goes the same training and education programs as our senior members.

The Greater Manassas Volunteer Rescue Squad (GMVRS) Auxiliary is an organization that directly supports the activities and operations of the GMVRS with various fund-raisers and functions. Although we work hand-in-hand with the volunteer members and career staff, we do not assist them in direct operational capacity. Our efforts are to better enable the volunteer members and career staff to perform their jobs by providing funding and other supporting services. We are looking to make our membership grow so that we may be able to better provide more support to our crews. If you would like to join the GMVRS Auxiliary, please feel free to stop by the station on any second Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM for one of our business meetings. We are always looking for new people to help our organziation grow.
