A message from Jeff Lowman, Avoca QRT (Quick Response Team) Captain:
The Avoca QRT has become inactive. I do not have the ability to run it as the only EMT. I would like to have kept it going, but with my business and family I do not have the time. If we could somehow get a few more EMT's then we could re-activate it. We need more people to volunteer to help. This can't be one of those things where people just think someone else will do it. You don't have to live in town, just in the Avoca district. Yes it costs money and time to be an EMT, but it is worth it.
