    My name is a Boris Portnov, and it's my honor to serve my neighborhood as an EMT member of the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps. The Corps has been serving the township in excess of 100 years. While other townships are dismantling their Volunteer organizations due to lack of membership our townships volunteer organization has been flourishing with membership turnout. This is a testimanent to how well run and dedicated this organization is to serving our townships. 

During Covid Teaneck was one of the epicenters of the outbreak. We did not waiver then, and we certainly don't intend to for many generations to come. 

We are fundraising to purchase first responder jump bags for all our regular members. Often members including myself respond to a pager call from our private vehicles.  We often arrive prior to the Ambulance and begin providing first responder medical care. This essential first responder care is often often crucial in certain delicate medical emergencies. The membership must purchase our own medical supplies to equip our personal vehicles. The equipment is very expensive and not affordable for many volunteers. Please help us out and make any contribution that's affordable to help our membership continue to effectively serve our community!

At TVAC, we take immense pride in our quick response time and high level of patient care. The average EMS response time in Bergen County is sixteen minutes. TVAC’s response time averages between 2-5 minutes. When seconds count, we dispatch the closest EMTs directly to the scene in addition to our crew and ambulance from our headquarters. This response model ensures that care can be started as quickly as possible with rapid transport to an appropriate hospital.

Currently, we do not have the resources to supply ALL of our members with a complete medical bag, oxygen tank, and automated external defibrillator (AED). We are asking you to consider a tax-deductible donation to enable our members to reduce the time to initiate life-saving treatment even further, by guaranteeing that each of our members is equipped to provide the highest level of treatment possible. Seconds really matter!

This campaign can only be successful with the generous support of the entire Teaneck community. We appreciate your generosity, and we pledge that we will always be there for you, your family, your neighbor, and your friends in a time of need. Our volunteers are your neighbors, coworkers, and even family members. Items can be donated individually (see below for prices) or as an entire “first responder kit” ($3000).
If you would like to make a donation in honor of a loved one or for a specific dedication. Please email us at [email protected]org.

Please consider supporting the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Since our founding in 1939, we have never charged a patient, and we consist solely of volunteer members who receive no monetary compensation. We continue to rely on your generosity so that we can assist anyone in the community in their time of need. Please Help us Help you!
