Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

February 28, 2024

On Wednesday, February 21 the EPFC completed a milestone achievement to become Lancaster County’s only Type 2A Water Rescue team. After, two and a half years, the EPFC completed the final portion of the Pennsylvania Voluntary Rescue Service Recognition Program (VRSR) for water rescue. A joint certification between the PA Department of Health and the PA Fish and Boat Commission. The VRSR certification team typing ranges from 1A to 4A with 1A being the highest.

The VRSR certification has several requirements including but not limited to, training records management, completion of annual competencies, equipment standards, minimum training standards, appropriate standard operating guidelines, and other qualifiers.

The Ephrata water team takes pride in this accomplishment and the abilities it provides for our residents in Ephrata Borough, Ephrata Township, and mutual aid partners.
