The Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad (SVFAS) and HomeTowne Television® announced the co-production of a short video about the good works of the "Rescue Squad," as it is known to residents. The video will be shown on HomeTowne Television (Comcast Ch. 36 / Verizon Ch. 33) four times a day, following each of its news broadcasts, which begin at 7:00 and 11:00 AM and PM. This is the time of year when the Squad seeks comunity-wide support for its annual budget funded entirely from community contributions.
The SVFAS video is also intended to assist the Rescue Squad in its first-ever capital campaign.
After 50 years of providing free life-saving volunteer service to the Summit Community, Rescue Squad is seeking $5 million in private contributions to replace its current outdated and failing facility. Operating under the motto “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”, the Rescue Squad provides 24/7 emergency services 365 days a year to Summit residents and visitors, ranging from the youngest to the oldest, and from sports events and street fairs to traffic accidents and snow storms – all at no cost to taxpayers. HomeTowne Television is proud to be able to partner with the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad in sharing information about this vital community service. Please tune in!
