Why We Need YOU
The New York State Legislature has awarded BSVAC a reimbursement grant of $125,000. This means that we first have to raise and spend $125,000 on our own to receive the grant! We URGENTLY need these funds for a new ambulance and medical and training equipment.
We are not a municipal EMS. And since a disproportionate number of our patients are either uninsured or underinsured, it is difficult to generate revenue from our ambulance calls. We rely heavily on the generosity of donors who recognize the value in what we do. The FDNY Bureau of EMS receives about 1.3 million emergency calls per year, and there just aren't enough ambulances to go around. Vollies are crucial to fill these gaps!
What We Do: Save Lives. Change Lives.
