Bedford County looks to attract more volunteer EMTs

After seeing a shape decline in volunteers, the Bedford County Department of Fire and Rescue says it's doing everything it can to attract more of them.

Bedford County will host an emergency medical technician course that will begin March 19th.

Bedford County Fire-Rescue Chief Jack Jones said in a news release volunteers make up 80 percent of the available first responders in the county.

For more information, or if you would like to enroll in the class, you can call 540-587-0700.

Last year, the department participated in a statewide program to figure out better ways to attract volunteers.
