Update on the Future New Bridge Rescue EMS Station!

By Greg Baker - July 2020

The Louisa County Board of Supervisors has approved $800,000 in the 2020-2021 Fiscal Year Budget and Capital Improvement Plan for construction of the New Bridge Rescue Station at the County-owned BarkPark location (1856 New Bridge Road) on Route 208 near Lake Anna.  The expressed understanding is that the first $100,000 as “seed money” would be raised from the local community before budget funds would be appropriated.

How can you help now?

Here are several ways to donate. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will bring us closer to making the New Bridge Rescue Station a reality.

Why are you being asked to donate?

In the past, construction of Fire and/or Rescue EMS stations was funded totally by the citizens of local communities via donations and fundraising events, rather than by Louisa County.  

With this in mind, a non-profit foundation was established, the Foundation for Lake Anna Emergency Services, and a commitment made for $100,000 of the cost to be raised by citizens and businesses.

This commitment helped to ensure the New Bridge Rescue Station inclusion in the budget.  Recently, County revenue is projected to be negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a result, the New Bridge Rescue Station will be competing with other budgeted capital improvement projects for appropriations.  Now, achieving the donations goal will help to convince the Board of Supervisors to appropriate the funds as soon as revenues become available.  We want to stay at the top of the list by raising the $100,000 “seed money” as quickly as possible!
