From this weeks Southside Sentinel … The future of volunteer rescue

 

squads in Middlesex was a hot topic of discussion on Thursday, March 2, at

 

the Middlesex County Volunteer Rescue Squad (MCVRS) building in

 

Deltaville.

 

MCVRS president Randy Crittenden explained that Middlesex Emergency

 

Services Coordinator Mark Nugent was coming that night to address

 

concerns of members that the county was going to take over the Hartfield

 

squad location with paid personnel. The Hartfield station is a branch of the

 

MCVRS.

 

Crittenden said it is not the county’s intention to take over the operation of

 

the Hartfield station, but county officials are looking for a remedy to help

 

the Central Middlesex Volunteer Rescue Squad (CMVRS) in Urbanna

 

provide 24-hour, 7-day-a-week service for the residents of the central and
western parts of the county.
