Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Roosevelt Island Search And Rescue Volunteers (RISAR) was Incorperated as a 501c3 Non Profit Corporation to provide First Responce Medical Services to the residents of Roosevelt Island.
Roosevelt Island is located in the East River between Manhattan and Queens. It is a very diverse community with various civic organizations. The island also has a high population of Senior Citizens and Disabled persons. What makes Roosevelt Island unique is that the Island is technically part of Manhattan, but all Emergency Medical Services, as well as Police Services are sent from Queens.
This causes a delay in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) response times in which persons experiancing a medical emergency have waited in excess of 20 minutes for an ambulance. RISAR provides First Responce - Basic Life Support services to treat and stabilize patients until an ambulance arrives.
RISAR is also authorized through the NYC Regional Emergency Medical Service Council (REMSCO) as a Public Accedd Defibirilation (PAD) agency.
