About Us

The Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corp. Inc., is committed to providing the best level of pre-hospital care to the city of Hoboken. info@hobokenems.com

In the late 1970’s two men, Edward F. McIntyre and Mr. William Matthews perceived the need for a more organized Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system in the city of Hoboken. HVAC was incorporated on February 26th, 1971 and training of the original fourteen members began. In the first year the Corps responded to a total of 648 calls. Soon after the Corps went into service the Maxwell Coffee Company donated our second ambulance.

In the years that followed, the Corps responded to an increasing number of calls. Last year the Corps responded to over 5,000 ambulance needs. No one has ever received a bill for our services. Currently we are the last all volunteer ambulance service in Hudson County NJ.

As times change so has the Corps. Currently we have 7 EMS vehicles and 6 bicycles capable of breaking up into 3 teams used in the summer at special events. The Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps has grown and changed over the years, however our motto has remained the same, “We care, we’ll be there.”

Volunteer

The Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps is the last ALL Volunteer Community Ambulance Service in Hudson County. We provide 911 Emergency Response and prearranged medical transports for Hoboken residents.

Each year we respond to over 5000 emergency calls. In order to meet the needs of our community and surroundings, we need your help.

If you’re interested in getting a CPR card, becoming an EMT or a Certified First Responder, then joining the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps will help.

Members in good standing will get their tuition to a NJ EMT training center fully paid, as well as further education to keep your certification up to date.

Are you going to a Community College in NJ? Need help paying for an Associate’s Degree? By working as a volunteer EMT, you will gain priceless, real-world knowledge about medical and trauma, pre-hospital, patient care.
