When a close friend was having a cardiac emergency, Jane Gallagher called 911. We were one-tenth of a mile from the Louisa Rescue Squad. That unit was already on a call. It took 20 minutes for a rescue squad to reach the scene. This prompted Jane to investigate rescue coverage for the homes along the Kentucky Springs/New Bridge Road corridor. She found over 2,300 homes outside of the 5-mile radius of any EMS station. As a registered nurse, she knew quick response times = better patient outcomes.

In the past, fire and rescue facilities in Louisa County were built by local communities through fundraising. With this in mind, a nonprofit foundation was established and a commitment made for $100,000 of the cost of the New Bridge Rescue Station to be raised by citizens and businesses.
While Louisa County included this project in the Capital Improvements Plan and appropriated $800,000 for construction in FY21, county revenue is projected to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the New Bridge Rescue Station will be competing with other budgeted capital improvement projects for funds. We want to stay at the top of the list by raising the $100,000 "seed money" as quickly as possible.
