The HRS Community Relations Committee is responsible for facilitating and overseeing our agency’s interactions with the Harrisonburg-Rockingham community. The goal of Community Relations is to build relationships with our neighbors, educate the public about health and safety, facilitate understanding about what our all-volunteer rescue squad is, and to build trust between children and public safety personnel.
Community Relations volunteers attend and host a number of events each year intended to accomplish these goals, including:
  • -“Ambulance Show & Tells” for elementary schools
  • -Community and school health fairs
  • -Annual Open Houses at HRS open to all community members
  • -Open Houses & “Show & Tells” for local children’s organizations
  • -Touch-A-Truck events
  • -Central Shenandoah Safe Kids events

HRS is honored to serve the Harrisonburg-Rockingham community and our positive relationships with residents, schools, local organizations and local businesses are incredibly important to us. If you’re interested in involving HRS in a community event, feel free to email us at; we’d be happy to discuss how we can help.
