Roanoke County Fire & Rescue, along with the Mount Pleasant Civic League recognized the Mount Pleasant First Aid Crew last week for their 53 years of dedicated service to the community.

On February 1st of this year the Mount Pleasant First Aid Crew dissolved its EMS organization after 53 years of dedicated service to the community. The crew cited the increasing call volume, greater training requirements and diminishing volunteers as the primary reasons for the disbanding. Crew officials said it became too difficult to commit to providing the high quality of emergency medical services (EMS) the community had come to expect.

The Mount Pleasant community is now protected by career crews who are assigned to the station around-the-clock, as well as the Mount Pleasant Volunteer Fire Company who covers the area on evenings and weekends.

At the reception, a bronze plaque was unveiled highlighting the crew’s service history. The plaque will hang on the exterior of the building.
