The Port Jervis Volunteer Ambulance Corp, Inc. is a non-profit organization. We staff our ambulances with both paid and volunteer personnel. Our funding comes from insurance billing and the generous donations of our community.
In our first year, the Port Jervis Lions Volunteer Ambulance answered 153 calls, now our ambulances are requested to respond to approximately 2,000 calls for help each year.
We serve a population of over 15,000 residents and cover an area of over 70 square miles. Our service area is one of the largest in Orange County, New York.
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.
