The mission of Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corps is to provide immediate availability of quality and professional emergency medical services and patient transportation services to the ill and injured residing in, visiting, or traveling through our service area.
Our family is made up of over 100 valued citizens and neighbors who since 1970 have provided prompt and professional medical care in both emergency and non-emergency settings to the communities in and around the towns, villages, and hamlets of Augusta, Kirkland, Marshal, New Hartford, Rome, Sangerfield, Vernon, Westmoreland, and Whitestown. With three stations, five ambulances, 24-hour coverage, and the newest equipment and technology available, we are able to safely respond, provide care, and transport the over 5,000 patients that we assist each year quicker than ever before.
A Whether you have 10 years of EMS experience or no years of EMS experience we welcome all those who are interested in becoming a part of our family to apply. And with the addition of our Junior Membership Program, local Middle School and High School students between the ages of 14 and 18 have an opportunity to gain skills and experiences that will last a lifetime.
As political, fiscal, and cultural challenges continue to affect Emergency Medical Services, COCVAC continues to grow and expand. By overcoming these many challenges and taking on new and exciting opportunities, we have ensured that "our family" will continue to "help your family" for decades to come.
