Hopewell Emergency Crew is a volunteer Emergency Medical Services organization for the city of Hopewell, Virginia.  Dispatched by the Hopewell Emergency Communications Center, Hopewell Emergency Crew provides  emergency medical care, rescue and first aid, and public services in addition to mutual aid EMS response for surrounding localities.

Our crew quarters is located in the heart of the city of Hopewell.  Still being housed in the same building that was built by the hands of volunteers from the community many years ago, our building is all inclusive housing our administrative offices, training classrooms, and living areas for on duty crews.  

All emergency medical care is provided by one of our four ambulances also housed at our crew headquarters.  Hopewell EMS also operates a Quick Response Vehicle.  All emergency vehicles are equipped and licensed to provide Advanced Life Support.  Care provided is in accordance with standards set by the Old Dominion EMS Alliance and meets or exceeds state regulations and requirements set by the Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services.

Without the dedication of our heroic members, none of this would be possible.  Our members come from all walks of life and have an undying love for the work of helping others.  Collectively, our members bring over 150 years of EMS experience with some members holding over thirty years individually.  We are excited that you have taken the time to visit our website and learn more about your volunteer emergency crew.  At Hopewell Emergency Crew, we are volunteers making a difference, one life at a time.
