The Lavallette Volunteer First Aid Squad, Inc. preserves life, improves health and promotes safety by gathering the talents of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Since 1942, Lavallette Volunteer First Aid Squad (LVFAS) provides emergency medical services (EMS) to the residents and visitors of the Upper Shore Region of the Jersey Shore entirely with volunteers. It is one of the oldest EMS agencies and provides around-the-clock coverage at no cost to the ill or injured people it aids. LVFAS is the designated ambulance agency for Lavallette and provides service by mutual aid to Ortley Beach/Normandy Beach/Toms River, Seaside Heights, Seaside Park, Brick Beach, Mantoloking, Bay Head and Berkeley. In 2017, the fleet consists of two, late-model ambulances, one four-wheel drive ambulance and a four-wheel drive SUV with an active corps of ten volunteers. In 2016, LVFAS handled approximately 300 emergency calls. Though LVFAS continues the tradition of "First Aid Squad" in its name, most members are certified Emergency Medical Technicians - some are also certified in other states and hold National EMT Registry certification. All training - CPR/AED, First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens, Emergency Vehicle Operators Course and EMT is provided free of charge!
