Events range from July 4 festivals, high school sports and major sporting events like Super Bowl XLVIII and the World Cup. In addition to ambulances, the corps has cooling stations, triage tents, a Gator and a bike team for rapid responses in crowded areas.
File of Life
The Hackensack Volunteer Ambulance Corps provides residents with a free File of Life. This form, which can be hung on a refrigerator, can contain useful medical information such as medications and allergies, meaning faster and better patient care when EMS is on scene. If you have an elderly relative living in town, we recommend helping them complete a File of Life and attaching it to their refrigerator. If you would like us to send you a File of Life free of charge, please complete the online form HERE.
The Corps conducts vehicle extrication drills with the Hackensack Fire Department to practice skills in a real life setting. The drills are conducted outside using donated cars. The public is welcome to observe a drill, which includes patient extrication and the use of the jaws of life.

The Hackensack Volunteer Ambulance Corps extends its education programs for students and other groups. We regularly provide tours and first aid training to boy scout and girl scout troops. If your group would like to arrange a tour or program, please contact us HERE.
The Corps hosts blood drives in collaboration with Community Blood Services and other local organizations. If your group is interested in holding a blood drive at our headquarters, please contact us HERE.
