Durand-Vernon Area Ambulance was officially founded on July 1st 1967.  This summer the volunteer agency would have celebrated 50 years serving the community.  2007, the agency's 40th anniversary year, marked the end of service after failed negotations with the city for additional funding resources and, ultimately, a lawsuit by the city against the agency.

We're looking for vintage DVA photos, videos and stories of rigs, personnel, the base, training, even the agency in action.  If you're willing to share with us, we'd love to include your materials on our newly designed Heritage page, set to be launched very soon.  The Durand Heritage will help preserve our local history in images, videos and text.

Share with us on social media or email us at breaking@durandnow.com.

If you've never seen it before, check out our HISTORIC TIMELINE of Durand that dates back to before Durand was even known as Durand.
