EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES
Glendale Volunteer Ambulance Corps
provides anyone in need of emergency
medical treatment in our response area
with prompt, efficient emergency care and
transport to any of the nearby hospitals
with no cost to you, the patient.
Our ambulances as well as our emergency medical technicians
are all New York State certified. This means you will be receiving
the highest level of care available by volunteers who make
themselves available to help you.
We were the FIRST NYC Office of Emergency Management
Community Emergency Response Team in Queens.
NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL TRANSPORTS
Glendale Volunteer Ambulance Corps also provides non-emergency
transport for any resident of the area. The ambulance is available to
transport any non-ambulatory resident to and from doctor's offices,
nursing homes, and/or hospitals.
Non-emergency transports must be scheduled in advance. To schedule a
non-emergency transport, call headquarters at (718)386-9651 or e-mail the

At Glendale Volunteer Ambulance Corps we understand the financial
burden medical expenses can be. We try to alleviate some of this
burden off of our residents by loaning out equipment (as available)
free of charge to any Glendale resident.
Some of the equipment we loan out is below:
• Crutches • Walkers • Wheelchairs • Canes
To borrow any equipment from us, call us at (718)386-9651 or e-mail

We also accept donations of equipment!

|Services That GVAC Provides
The Glendale Volunteer Ambulance Corps is always there, always ready.
We were the only organization with generators and power during the blackout
of 2003. We were out there after the hurricanes, snow storms and tornado
cutting down trees, shoveling intersections, and ensuring that the Glendale
Community was safe and accessible in case of an emergency.
AND WE WILL BE OUT THERE AGAIN, PROTECTING YOU AND YOUR
