PRINCETON, W.Va. (WVVA) - The Princeton Rescue Squad has been serving and saving since 1961. The group continues to be on the frontline in protecting the community through the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We're all just in this together -- the whole community," emergency medical dispatcher Diana Carosi said. "PRS is a very strong agency. We're very close -- more like a large family."
"The community is something that's just very important to us," added administrative assistant Sam Perdue. "We do the best we can to make sure the community is taken care of."
"We're having to do a little more work and take a couple extra strides to make sure that we keep everyone safe," assistant chief of operations Eli Patterson admitted. "But, at the end of the day, that's the responsibility that we signed up for -- to go out and care for the people in our community and our county."
"What we're telling our people right now is -- there is no one else to take care of the community," CEO Stacey Hicks stated. "It's us -- and we're going to be there and do everything we can to keep our community safe."
