We strive to provide professional, caring, and courteous emergency medical services to residents and visitors in the City of Hackensack free of charge.
Our volunteer ambulance corps members work tirelessly and without pay. The volunteers keep returning because of their dedication and pride in the community, the incredible sense of satisfaction in helping to save a life, deliver a baby, administer CPR, or just helping a fellow person in their time of need.
Through the years, many of our volunteers have moved on to valuable and rewarding careers using their EMS background as an excellent foundation. These careers include, but are not limited to: police dispatchers, police officers police superiors, a local Chief of Police, numerous career EMTs and EMT instructors, paramedics, nurses, doctors and other allied health personnel, and firefighters. Many of these dedicated volunteers continued volunteering for the corps while juggling these full-time emergency service careers. That display of dedication is what our corps is all about and why our success continues.
Training and tuition is free for prospective volunteers of the Hackensack Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Candidates will have to pass the state-administered test certifying them as Emergency Medical Technicians upon completion of the course.
