The Rochelle Park Volunteer Ambulance Corps is a group of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and energy to provide Rochelle Park with 7 day a week around the clock emergency medical service.  The members are highly trained as Emergency Medical Technicians and pride themselves in providing exceptional and timely care whenever called upon.  The Squad uses state of the art equipment and utilizes 2 well maintained ambulances.   To keep abreast of the latest in emergency medical technology and face the new challenges and threats that confront us today, the members must continue their education by attending classes covering all aspects of the Emergency Medical Service that are mandated by the State of New Jersey to keep their EMT certifications valid.  To prepare for their response to any major incident that may occur, the Ambulance Corps also works closely and drills regularly with the Police and Fire Departments of Rochelle Park and surrounding communities.  To report an emergency or call for an ambulance,
dial 9-1-1.

            Besides providing the emergency services described above, the Rochelle Park Volunteer Ambulance Corps also provides free of charge to the residents of Rochelle Park, the loaning of medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, etc.  Whenever possible, the Squad also provides routine transports of residents between medical facilities and home, also free of charge.  Unfortunately, due to manpower constraints, transports can only be done in the evening hours and only when there are off-duty members available.  The Squad also conducts CPR training classes at cost for books only.  To access any of these services, call the Ambulance Corps at (201) 587-7744.

            The Corps is always looking for new members.  All training required to become a certified EMT is provided free of charge by the Squad at the Bergen County EMS Training Center in Paramus or the Law and Public Safety Institute-EMS Academy in Mahwah.  If interested, call or stop by the Ambulance Building.  You can also download an application card from this site and mail or bring it to the Ambulance Building or drop it off at the Municipal Complex.
