Allendale Volunteer Ambulance had a busy night on Friday, December 2, 2015 --- we helped ring in the holiday season in Saddle River at their Tree Lighting Ceremony and then, once back in Allendale, helped escort Santa in to Allendale's downtown.  We had a great night meeting & greeting residents in Allendale & Saddle River and even had a chance to pose with Santa and members of the Allendale Fire Department before he headed back to the North Pole.

On the morning of Sunday September 13, 2015 an explosion & fire occurred at the PSE&G substation in neighboring Waldwick.  Fire, rescue, haz-mat, police and EMS teams from all over Bergen County and Northern New Jersey were called into action.  Crews came to support local communities while our resources were used at the scene in Waldwick.  Others, like AVAC, were called to the scene to help support the personnel working in the scene.  AVAC members provided rehab and first aid from 1200 until 2100 hours that day.  All personnel went home safely to their families.  Job well done!!

Great day for a great demonstration at Northern Highlands Regional High School.  Members of AVAC, Allendale Fire Department, Upper Saddle River Ambulance Corps, Hohokus Ambulance Corps, Upper Saddle River Fire Department, Hohokus Fire Department, Saddle River Fire Department and The Valley Hospital Advanced Life Support helped to teach juniors & seniors some valuable lessons about the dangers of drunk / impaired driving. - 17 April 2015


Mary Hope Clark, Ambassador Girl Scout and future EMT, presents to Girl Scouts in Allendale at their annual Community Day.  Many girls said the AVAC presentation was their favorite of the day - even better than the s'mores presentation! - 13 April 2015


Winter Storm Juno Stand-by January 26-27, 2015
AVAC made room for AFD's antique engine in our bay.  
Once the engine was moved to AVAC there was plenty of room for one of our ambulances to stay throughout the storm.  
This enabled us to have a crew on each side of town ready to help our community.
We moved our Rapid Response Vehicle 212 into the bay to enable rapid snow removal throughout the storm in our parking lot.
