The Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) has announced the 29 recipients of the 2022 Achievement Awards, which recognizes excellence in local government programs. Botetourt Fire & EMS is a recipient in the public safety category.
Botetourt Fire & EMS was nominated for the VACo award because of the recent accomplishment of being recognized as the 2021 EMS Agency of the Year by the Governor’s Office and for their work during the COVID-19 Pandemic. During the pandemic, the department launched the “Boost Botetourt” Campaign, which brought COVID-19 vaccines to the homes of those most vulnerable.
VACo received 100 submissions from governmental organizations throughout the Commonwealth.
