Northampton Volunteer Ambulance Association serves the Town of Northampton and the Village of Northville. Northampton Ambulance service is made up of dedicated volunteers and has been in existence for 50 years. The volunteer members commit many hours each year for ambulance duty and training. Our community is privileged to have this dedicated organization in our area.
In 2014 Northampton Ambulance attended 166 patients, served 3500 volunteer hours and the ambulance traveled 4,500 miles.
Over the past year, several members renewed their EMT and Advanced AMT certifications. For the coming year, member training and education will continue in all aspects of emergency response.
All the members of the Northampton Ambulance Service thank everyone in the community for continued interest and support.
The Northampton Ambulance Service is staffed by volunteers from within the community it serves. The Ambulance service is currently looking for ambulance Drivers. Drivers must be at least 18 years of age and have a clean driving record. Required training to qualify as a Driver includes BLS For Healthcare Providers (5 hours), CEVO III: Ambulance (6 hours), OSHA Orientation (2 hours), plus on-the-road mentoring with one of our experienced Drivers. These education programs are all available right here in Northampton at the Ambulance Service training room.
Aides work alongside EMT's and Medics assisting in many aspects of patient care and transport. Aides require OSHA & BLS classes, along with an in-house orientation program. Minimum age for Aides is 16 years old.
Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) classes are scheduled annually around the area. Completion of the classes earns a NYS Health Department Certification which meets the National Education Standards requirements for EMT's. The class is approximately 150+ hours of classroom time including practical skills laboratories. To be recommended and sponsored by Northampton Ambulance Service, a candidate must first complete Driver training and be an active and regular responder on calls as both an Aide and a Driver. To take the EMT final exam, a candidate must have reached his/her 18th birthday prior to the scheduled examination date.
For more information and to get an application form, please call our EMS Chief, Jack Farquhar at 863-2468.
