Getting vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health. Diseases can quickly spread among groups of children who aren’t vaccinated.
Whether it’s a baby starting at a new child care facility, a toddler heading to preschool, a student going back to elementary, middle or high school, or even a college freshman, parents should check their child’s vaccination records.

WFAC Assists Rockingham County With Water Rescue
On Thursday, May 25th Waynesboro First Aid Crew was dispatched to assist Rockingham County with a water rescue with 5 people reported in the water in swift water conditions. Medic Response 10 and Boat 1 responded to this incident with 2 personnel. Thankfully the victims were all recovered and no further incidents occurred in relation to this event.
We would like to use this as a reminder to all that heavy rains can cause flash flooding which in turn will increase the speeds of rivers as well as cause rushing water on roadways. Be safe while out on the river in these conditions and also use the motto of “turn around, don’t drown” when confronted with flash flooding on roadways.
