Emergency Medical Services
While we know you will enjoy the peace and quiet of Olde Surber Station, we want you to rest assured that modern emergency medical services are nearby and always ready to respond to an emergency. Your hosts, Jack (Paramedic) and Carol (AEMT) Lewis, live next door and are two of four state certified emergency medical technicians in our area. We have a fully equipped, VA state certified, emergency response vehicle (shown top right) for use in responding to local emergency calls. We can call in ambulances from Craig County, Eagle Rock, and Fincastle. In the event of a serious medical or trauma emergency, we can call in a Carilion LifeGuard helicopter located at the Carilion Hospital in downtown Roanoke.
