The Ridgewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps is the only volunteer ambulance corps in New York City to service two boroughs, Brooklyn and Queens. We have an extremely large service area with a high call volume. We are constantly looking for both experienced and fresh EMT's to join our family.

You can find us on Onderdonk Avenue, between Greene and Bleeker. We may not always have a volunteer at base to take walk-ins, so give us a call!

We are composed of all non-paid members. To see what the Ridgeood Volunteer Ambulance Corps is about, click here.
