In our first year, the Port Jervis Lions Volunteer Ambulance answered 153 calls, now our ambulances are requested to respond to over 2,000 calls for help each year. Our ambulances and paramedic flycars are certified by the New York State Dept. of Health and licensed by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Health. This requires each vehicle to be fully supplied to meet the specifications of both New York and Pennsylvania.
The Port Jervis Volunteer Ambulance Corp, Inc. is a non-profit organization. We staff our ambulances with both paid staff and volunteers.
As well as providing emergency ambulance service to the community the Port Jervis Volunteer Ambulance Corp. also covers many of our area's special events including parades, football games, festivals, the annual 5K and 10K races, and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
