The Virginia Tech Rescue Squad receives Event Notification Forms on a continuing basis. If your group, organization or department is sponsoring an event that requires Emergency Medical Services on hand (i.e. dances, parties, “after-hours” events, road races, major entertainment events/concerts or events advertised to the non-university public) or one that meets the requirements of the Student Centers and Activities Event Planning Office. Unusually large events or venues may require additional service and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.Organizers will be notified of special needs shortly after receipt of the Event Notification Form. Please fill out an Event Notification Form no later than 30 days prior to the event date. Our Personnel Lieutenant will be in contact with you within the next 10 business days to inform you if your request has been accepted and possibly to follow up if more information is needed.

As of July 1, 2008 all event standbys will be subject to a Cost Recovery Fee assessed at a rate of $50.00/hr. Payment for the Cost Recovery Fee must be received no later than 72 hours prior to the date of the event. Sponsors may NOT outsource Emergency Medical Services (this includes volunteer and private ambulance companies). For more information regarding payment of the Cost Recovery Fee please contact the Administrative Captain via email or phone as listed below. Appeals for the Cost Recovery Fee should be submitted to the Administrative Captain no later than 10 days prior to the event date. They may be submitted in writing to the address below or emailed to
