Wells Volunteer Ambulance Corps

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 - Updated: 11:43 AM

Wells Volunteer Ambulance Corps was founded in 1950 and was part of Wells Fire Company until 1985, when the Town of Wells became owner of the ambulance. The town provides insurance, some medical supplies, vehicle maintenance and fuel.

WVAC is part of the Adopt-A-Highway Program, sponsors the annual Wells Central School Halloween Party, awards a scholarship to a WCS senior going into the medical field and holds an annual Tricky Tray in partnership with Wells Fire Company.

The corps holds a 20-week raffle and mails an annual fundraising letter to help raise money for equipment, communications, training materials and programs.

The corps also sponsors a can / bottle redemption center at the Old American Legion Building. It is open the second Tuesday of each month from 6-7 p.m.

Meetings are the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Volunteers are needed for emergency medical technicians, drivers and dispatchers or social members. Teens age 14 and up are welcome to join the Explorers and become part of this volunteer organization.

The emergency number for the ambulance or fire department is 924-2354. Please send donations to Wells Ambulance Corps, POB 550, Wells NY 12190.
