About Tuckahoe Volunteer Rescue Squad
Tuckahoe Volunteer Rescue Squad (TVRS) began operating on December 6, 1953, with one telephone, one ambulance, and 26 volunteers. Our first permanent building was built in 1955, at our main station's current location at 1101 Horsepen Road. In March 1985, we dedicated our substation at 2320 Pump Road, which is located in the western portion of Tuckahoe's primary service area.
Out of our two stations we operate a fleet of six advanced life support ambulances, a crash truck, two advanced life support quick-response vehicles, and a utility van. This equipment is staffed by more than 120 professionally trained and certified volunteer EMTs and paramedics.
In 2010, our members responded to nearly 5,000 calls for medical assistance in our community at no charge to our patients. Since our modest beginnings in 1953, we have answered over 235,000 calls for service.
