Support the Volunteer Ambulance Squad

The Glen Ridge Volunteer Ambulance Squad is an independent non-profit corporation providing superior quality emergency medical pre-hospital services to the Glen Ridge community including mutual aid response to surrounding towns. To provide these services, GRVAS relies on donations of time from dedicated volunteers, and monetary support from residents, and local charitable organizations. 

Because the GRVAS does not bill patients or their insurance companies for its services, tax-deductible donations are vitally important to the ambulance squad. In addition to daily operations including the cost of new member training and certification, GRVAS must continually raise money to fund its daily operations, provide training, and replace, repair or purchase service equipment as necessary in order to adequately respond to emergency calls.

Beginning in June, 2019, the GRVAS has initiated a fundraising campaign - Dig for the Rig - to raise $172,800 to purchase a new ambulance to replace our 12-year-old ambulance.  Please consider "digging deep" to fund our new rig. For more information about the new ambulance, click on the "Dig for the Rig" link above.
