The Town of Vinton and the Vinton Messenger are saluting members of the Vinton First Aid Crew (VFAC) for their generous contributions of time and effort to the community. This week’s featured volunteer is Megan Sayre. She is an EMT-Intermediate and has been with the crew for 12 years.
Sayre is from Vinton. Her day job is as a Cardiac RN.
She began volunteering with the Cave Spring First Aid Crew, joining as “just something to do.”
“I came to Vinton because it had more of a family atmosphere,” Sayre says.
Sayre’s husband, Chris, is the Chief of the Vinton First Aid Crew. They met volunteering for the crew and now have one son. Her mother-in-law Sandy Sayre is also a long-time volunteer with the VFAC. In her spare time, Megan enjoys crafts.
She says that volunteering for the VFAC helps the community and provides a great education, all in a family atmosphere.
“We are truly blessed to have the Vinton First Aid Crew in our town,” says Vinton Mayor Brad Grose. “The Crew has a long history of service to the residents of Vinton and the surrounding area. Many of our citizens have amazing stories about the wonderful service provided to them by the devoted members of the Crew.”
“A common trait among individual members of the crew is their desire to serve their fellowman,” the mayor said. “The Vinton First Aid Crew offers an opportunity to serve, and it also provides valuable medical training that can truly be lifesaving. There is a strong sense of camaraderie and family in the Crew that is rarely duplicated in organizations of its size.”
“The citizens of Vinton can rest assured that they will always receive professional and caring service from the dedicated members of our Vinton First Aid Crew.”
Thank you for your service, Megan Sayre!
