2022 Recognition Awards

BVA held our Recognition Banquet on Saturday, September 24, to honor our dedicated Paramedics, EMTs, and Staff.

Each year our call volume continues to increase. In 2021, BVA answered 7,381 calls for emergency care. So far this year, we have received more than 5,500 requests for help so we expect to easily surpass last year’s volume. We appreciate the extraordinary efforts that our providers and staff make every day, on every call.

Thank you to our guests and attendees who helped us celebrate and recognize BVA personnel.
