AVAD will conducting a volunteer appreciation and information meeting.  We will be meeting at Howard Hall on Wednesday November 13th at 1800.   Brats, snacks, drinks and sweets will be available for you to eat. We will be updating our records as well as going over scheduling, uniforms and our new volunteer benefit package.   Now that we are a district we are able to offer some great perks to our volunteers who offer their  time and efforts to serving their community and assisting AVAD.   Please bring the following items:

   EMT’s/Drivers

  *   License number and expiration (EMT’s)

  *   Drivers License

  *   BLS/ACLS or other certification cards

Thank you all for your continued service to AVAD. We are still learning and growing so please let us know how we can improve as well as make sure you have the tools you need to be an active volunteer.

If you are on the fence about volunteering please start thinking about what your barriers might be and ways we could maybe help. Also we will be teaching an EMT course in Howard starting in January. If you know of anyone who may be interested or if you are a driver who may be interested please let us know. 

Thank you, 

Arkansas Valley Board of Directors
