As of January, 2017, the Glen Ridge Ambulance Squad's total membership stands at over 100.  Here's how to join GRVAS.

The Glen Ridge Volunteer Ambulance Squad is an entirely volunteer organization. Our members provide pre-hospital emergency medical care and transport for the town of Glen Ridge and our neighboring communittees. This service is provided 24 hours a day, 7days a week. 

Our members have been trained according to national and state criteria in emergency vehicle operation (CEVO), CPR, First Responder and EMT certifications. 

The GRVAS is a remarkable mix of volunteers from our immediate community. Our members include attorneys, real estate brokers, teachers, construction tradesmen, high school and college students, and retired folks. All members dedicate the time and the energy that best fits their family and professional obligations. The common thread throughout the group though, is an interest in helping the community and gaining the skill set. 

The squad is administered by elected officers and overseen by a board of trusteesThe day to day operation of the squad is run by the Captain. Other officer positions include motor officer for ambulance upkeep, day and night time coordinators, personal equipment and supply officers. 

 When an individual becomes a member of the squad, the GRVAS takes responsibility for providing the uniform, equipment and all the training required to be a active responder. Although most our members are state or nationally certified EMTs, a large number of the staff have volunteered their time as drivers and are satisfied to have had the CPR training and emergency vehicle CEVO training. 

 The Glen Ridge Volunteer Ambulance Squad is a microcosm of the Glen Ridge community. whether you're a member of the women's club, or Kwanis, take the train to work or work locally, you are likely to be doing that with someone on the "squad."
