Volunteers work hard for the community

Members of the Cartersville Volunteer Rescue Squad are facing a challenge that many other rescue agencies are struggling with: the number of volunteers. To help combat this, the squad is offering a scholarship to those interested in volunteering with the squad, helping those in their hour of need in the Cartersville community. We thank all rescue squad volunteers across the community for their hard work and dedication, not only in coming to the aid of others, but for tirelessly seeking and training new volunteers to keep their doors open.
