- The Eatontown Volunteer Ambulance Corp., Inc., also known as Eatontown EMS, has been serving the community since 1929. It is a non-profit, volunteer organization that depends on support from the citizens and governing body of the Borough of Eatontown. The department's operations are under the command of the Captain, assisted by the EMS Officers.
- Eatontown EMS covers about 5 square miles and about 1,800 calls for service per year. We provide mutual aid assistance for surrounding towns such as Shrewsbury, Oceanport, West Long Branch, and Tinton Falls.
- Eatontown EMS currently operates 2 basic life support (BLS) ambulances. These ambulances are utilized for daily operations and are rotated on a monthly basis.
- Eatontown EMS uses Dr. Ken Lavelle as its Medical Director. This allows us to administer additional medications such as Naloxone (NARCAN), Epi-Pens, Aspirin, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) masks, and QuikClot.
Eatontown EMS believes its core mission is to serve the community. This includes prevention education and public outreach initiatives. We attend "touch-a-truck" events at local schools and organizations to provide an opportunity for children to see our equipment without having to be a patient. We give station and ambulance tours to civic organizations such as the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. We also provide free bleeding control classes for the public in cooperation with the Stop the Bleed program.
Eatontown EMS provides teenagers between 15 and 17 years of age unprecedented access to the field of pre-hospital emergency medical care through its Cadet Program. The program includes free medical training, ride-alongs, and opportunities to meet and train with other emergency service organizations.
This is a great opportunity for community service hours and those interested in joining the medical field.
The Cadet Program meets every first Saturday at 7:00PM at the Eatontown Firehouse. If you are interested in becoming a cadet, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
