WHO WE ARE
We're just like you.
ASVAC is an all-volunteer force. Our members range in age from 16 to 60+, and have diverse backgrounds and professions. We have lawyers, scientists, teachers, and businesspeople too - and that doesn't even cover the full corps.
We're not just limited to adults, too. ASVAC has a dedicated, enthusiastic junior corps of Ardsley High School students. With their parents' and teachers' permission, and if their grades are maintained, they are permitted to leave school during the day to ride calls.
Among our many accomplishments, our teams have saved heart attack victims, delivered babies on the Thruway, pulled victims out of automobile accidents, splinted broken bones and reassured new parents with feverish children - just to name a few. Just as often, we offer a soothing, supportive voice to individuals and families in crisis.
It is a good feeling to know you have made a positive difference in someone's life. When you call 911, well-trained, caring, and passionate friends and neighbors will respond to your call for help.
