The Ellington Volunteer Ambulance Corps is looking for new members.
For over 50 years, EVAC has provided ambulance service to the community. As the town has grown, so has the need for emergency medical services.
As part of EVAC, someone can expect an atmosphere of professionalism, camaraderie and personal growth. Members say that possibly the biggest reward of volunteering is helping those in need in your own community.
New members of EVAC will receive initial and ongoing training, as well as all necessary equipment. Although EVAC is required to provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, members are able to sign up for shifts that work into their own schedules via a computerized scheduling program.
In addition to routine emergency calls, the EMTs also participate in special events such as carnivals, parades, and youth activities. Occasionally, EVAC also provides emergency support to surrounding towns.
Applications for membership can be found at www.ellingtonambulance.org. Any questions can be directed to EVAC at 860-870-3170.
