The Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance Corps was incorporated in 1948 and has continuously served the Borough of Fair Lawn since that time. Currently the Corps has nearly 40 volunteers who staff the ambulances 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. The Corps handles nearly 2000 calls per year in Fair Lawn and a small percentage as mutual aid in surrounding communities. Starting in 1995 nearly all members were certified as EMT-Ds (defibrillator). Since the start of EMT-D two lives saved can be directly attributed to the program.
The Corps is actively seeking new members. All of our members are strictly volunteer and various memberships have different requirements. All classifications are desperately needed:
