Mt. Holly volunteers serve in many ways

In the near future, the squad plans to increase its membership; hopefully, the free classes will help fulfill that goal. The squad also plans to integrate more continuing education and training for the membership. This will help maintain certifications more easily and provide better care for local communities. As always, building and medical and other equipment renovations are always on the top of the list for improvements.

The Mt. Holly squad works diligently in their community. They volunteer more time in order to hold various events for the area.

According to volunteer Kristin Veysey, "Mt. Holly Rescue plans to hold an annual health fair that is a community oriented event. It will include EMS education, free safety supplies that change yearly, DHART landing and education, free chicken barbeque, and other fun activities. We also have our yearly fundraisers to look forward to, which include a monthly BINGO located at Mt. Holly School, annual pork dinner located at the Odd Fellows in Belmont, and our annual community mailing. We also have many public education events here and there that we attend to check blood pressures and health screenings. Considering we are a volunteer ambulance service, we are quite active in our community and plan to stay that way."
