BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL:   From its initial birth in 1958, the Winchester Volunteer Rescue Squad was established to provide rescue services to Winchester, Frederick County and other counties expanding into West Virginia. The charter members included 25-30 people and continued to expand to roughly 100 members in the 1980s. The rescue squad had moved locations three times before it formally changed its name and purpose in April of 1998. The Winchester Volunteer Rescue Squad adopted the name Millwood Station Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company #21, Incorporated and became Virginia’s first Rescue Squad Volunteer Association member to become a fire and rescue company.  In January of 2004, the company relocated for a fourth time to its current location at 250 Costello Drive, Winchester, Virginia, 22602, where it continues to serve the Winchester and Frederick County areas.
