With a motto of “Everyone Goes Home” The Metro Richmond Flying Squad is a Rehab/Canteen response unit staffed by volunteers who operate at various incidents to offer Rehab/Canteen services to the Metro Richmond emergency responders. The Metro Richmond Flying Squad provides a “safety net” for those emergency workers by providing a safe, clean area to rest, rehydrate, re-nourish and be medically evaluated for a period prior to going back into emergency operation mode.

Last night the Richmond City Council unanimously approved the ordinance that authorizes the sale of 2901 Bainbridge Street (Richmond’s former firehouse 17). This property will become the headquarters for the Flying Squad along with other exciting potential uses that honor the steep firefighting history of the City of Richmond.
