On the evening of July 22, 2013, we lost a hero...
Officer Dave Lee VanBuskirk fell during a helicopter rescue operation at Mt. Charleston while saving a man’s life.
As a search and rescue officer, Dave saved countless people’s lives and did so with a remarkable amount of compassion.
He worked hard to gain experience and knowledge far beyond what was required, which is an example of one of his many outstanding qualities.
Dave always put intense effort into anything he did in life.
Dave worked hard to become certified as a paramedic and spent hours every week training to stay in shape for the demands of his duty.
He would never be satisfied with just being acceptable.
