My name is Anthony Verley. I’ve been a member of TVAC for 39 years and the organization is a second family to me. As a volunteer corps we rely on donations to bring quality emergency medical care to the Teaneck population at zero cost. Our corps is full of dedicated individuals, who work hard in order to give back to their community. As we all battle with the devastation of the coronavirus, our costs are soaring as Teaneck has been the hardest hit community in NJ. It’s our job to not only respond to potential COVID-19 calls but to help people experiencing other medical emergencies as well. Additional equipment is needed for our volunteer members to stay safe as well as additional equipment for the ambulances.
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]
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!
