VVES proudly protects an area of 53 square miles. We operate out of one station that serves a primarily rural area. We are a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status. We are no longer financially supported by the Town of Vestal, but generate income by billing patient’s insurance companies for services. If you’re interested in joining, see our membership page.
VVES is also the charter sponsor for the VVES EMS Explorer Program. Explorer programs were started for individuals from ages 14 to 20 by the Boy Scouts of America in order to foster learning in specific career areas. The three main goals of the VVES Explorer Post are to provide community education about Emergency Medical Services, to teach CPR and basic first aid, and to offer interesting information about careers in EMS. Anyone in their age group, male or female, interested in this program should contact the Explorer Coordinator.
