Crews preparing to participate in the annual Battleday Celebration in Bennington.


Interested in learning to save a life? Just want to learn CPR? Maybe being a clinical provider does not excite you, but you have other talents that could help Bennington Rescue achieve it’s mission? Would you be willing to sit on our Board of Directors? Assist the Finance Committee on budgeting? How about join the off road team so you hike into the woods to find lost hikers? Maybe help the development committee on fundraising? Like to landscape and want to give our building a facelift? Want to help us with annual maintenance and paint a room? Have some free time and would be interested to sit and work with some of our falls prevention patients?

In order to make Bennington Rescue an organization that achieves it’s mission, it takes many people doing many things. If you have a desire to get involved, we would love to talk with more about it.

You can call us at 802-442-5817 or email us at info@benningtonrescue.org

We would love to hear from you!
