Rescue and Technical Rescue Squads - Amy Akerlind

On October 20 Colchester Rescue and Technical Rescue Squad held their annual banquet. It is the night of the year that we get dressed up and have some fun as a squad. We enjoy dinner, dancing, and recognize those who went above and beyond the call of duty over the past year. This year we presented awards to the following members:

  • Member of the Year: Mike Hendrickson
  • Rookie of the Year: Libby Connors
  • Most Volunteer Shifts Run: Megan Severance (107.75 shifts/ 1,293 hours)
  • Most Outreach Events: Abbie Longchamp
Technical Rescue:
  • Member of the Year: Dave Auriemma
  • Meritorious Awards: Chip Perry, Mike Akerlind, Jon Strazza, Chuck DiSchino
We would like to say a big thank you to St. Michael’s Fire and Rescue for covering our station for the night and to UVM Rescue for providing the standby service at the Colchester High School Football game. We could not have enjoyed our night without their help!
The Colchester Rescue Squad (CRS) is a combination volunteer/paid service, licensed at the Paramedic level.

We respond to around 1,300 calls a year in the Town of Colchester and its surrounding communities.
