Fire District Chief Jay Ducote Says,

"We see VerdeCares as a partner in fulfillment of our plan to provide emergency support to our communities.  They provide the services that help residents transition from the hospital to home self-sufficiency and this reduces return hospital ambulance trips. VerdeCares proactively helps residents with medical equipment and other resources helping to minimize repetitive calls for assistance.  Additionally, VerdeCares, as a member of our Rio Verde Emergency Preparedness Plan, provides strategic volunteer services to support our Fire District in an emergency.  We see VerdeCares as an integral part of our plan to carry out disaster recovery operations, especially in identifying and attending to individuals requiring emergency assistance."
