The Bedford Life Saving & First Aid Crew, Inc. is an ALL VOLUNTEER Emergency Medical Services agency. We are located in the City of Bedford, VA and our first due area is approximately 220 sq. miles, to include part of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the D-Day Memorial.

Currently we are supplemented by Bedford County Fire and Rescue Career Staff when needed. We operate in the BREMS (Blue Ridge Emergency Medical Services) region and are licensed by the Office of EMS, under the Department of Health.

We have about 20-25 members who are certified from EVOC, EMT-B up to Nationally Registered Paramedic level. Our members range from 16 to 76 years old and some have been with the crew for over 45 years. There are two types of membership with their crew duty hours: Junior Member (16 and 17 yr olds) 12 hours per month and Full Member (18 and up) 36 hours per month. Our crew is made up of everyday people that have dedicated some extra time to helping their neighbors when needed. We offer free training and uniforms and we are always looking for new volunteers to help out. Please contact us if you are interested in helping. 

The crew operates 4 Advanced Life Support ambulances and 1 Basic Life Support Quick response vehicle out of our one station at 311 Bedford Avenue.  We answer approximately 1000 calls for service each year.
