As the number of requests for our services increases, FLVAC is approaching 3,000 calls per year.
During our busiest hours, we can have up to four ambulances out at a time. We are looking for new members who are willing to respond and help their fellow neighbours during these hours, particularly in the day time!
Membership Categories and Requirements
The road to becoming an EMT and a general member at FLVAC is a long but rewarding road. For new members, FLVAC hosts two membership categories depending on age.
Cadets are our youngest membership category. Cadets range from 16-18 years of age and must commit to 6 hours of service biweekly. Probationary members include new members 18 and over and must commit to 22 hours biweekly.
FLVAC requires that new members attend EMT school within one year of start date. EMT school is a five-month course that consists of 230 hours of in-person instruction in addition to the online component. Classes generally follow the Fall or Spring semester. Admission to the summer session is rare and space is limited.
Not a Fair Lawn Resident? Not a problem!
We accept members who live in or out of town! We currently have members who are residents of Paterson, Oakland, and Garfield-just to name a few. Our only requirement is that during scheduled shifts, you must be present in the borough.
