Since our creation in 1954, the Englewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps (EVAC) has provided emergency basic life support to the people of Englewood. EVAC is a not-for-profit emergency medical agency that relies on donations, and some city funds, to operate on a daily basis. We are staffed by over 30 dedicated volunteers, mostly EMTs, all of whom help to maintain a professional and reliable organization that are trained to handle the nearly 3,000 911 calls we receive annually. Our members are state certified Emergency Medical Technicians and First Responders, all of whom continually improve and renew their training to make sure that they can handle any medical emergency that could occur. In addition to our staff, we work in conjunction with the Englewood Police Department, Englewood Fire Department and the local hospitals' Mobile Intensive Care Units to ensure that every patient receives the highest quality of care.
We provide emergency medical assistance, care and transportation to patients in Englewood and our surrounding towns when their municipality is in need; without regard to race, creed or ethnic background. EVAC is one of the founding members of the East Bergen Ambulance Association (EBAA), an organization that provides mutual aid to each others towns that stretches from Tenafly and Teaneck to Cliffside Park and Little Ferry. We have always worked hard to support our neighbors when they are in need. We work with them to keep the volunteer movement strong and will continue to do so in the future.
