- Board of Directors – Chairperson, Two additional Directors, mind plus the following
- Administrative Officers – President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer

Special projects are often executed using committees which offer another opportunity for our active members to participate in the organization beyond traditional delivery of EMS.
The CVRS Auxiliary provides an opportunity for those who want to volunteer, but do not want to provide direct patient care or transport. Our auxiliary is committed to supporting the mission of the CVRS by:
- Advocating health and wellness through education and public outreach programs.
- Conducting fundraising activities to supplement finances.
- Promoting a positive image of the CVRS in the communities served.
We often also require help from the community during our fundraising efforts. If you are not able to help as either an active member or in the auxiliary but have interest in assisting with events if needed we would love to know.
