The Valhalla Ambulance Corps was chartered in 1961 to provide ambulance service to Valhalla and North White Plains including the surrounding areas. Currently we serve the Valhalla and North White Plains Fire Districts boundaries as well as with the fire companies for rehabilitation services which include the Taconic, Bronx River, and Sprain Brook Parkways. In addition, we have a mutual agreement to assist our neighboring communities if their own ambulances should become unavailable.
We ask that all members commit a minimum of 16 hrs/month. We take our commitment seriously, and expect you to do the same, when scheduled for a duty shift, you are expected to be ready and able to respond to ambulance calls at any time during that shift. Should you not be able to fulfill your scheduled duty shift, it is your responsibility to get another member to cover that shift for you.
We hold regular Corps meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. We urge you to be present at meetings, training sessions, parades, and other special events when available. Communication is very important to us for shift scheduling, training and other important issues. We urge you to read all communications sent to you to keep up to date on the latest information.
We urge you to take advantage of training opportunities, such as CPR, First Aid, and EMT courses as they become available, whether offered by the Valhalla Ambulance Corpse, or by another organization.
Once you complete and turn in your membership application, you will be contacted by our Membership Committee for an interview. Upon being accepted by our Committee, you will be accepted to the Corps for a minimum probationary period of six (6) months. Throughout this period, the Membership Committee will evaluate your progress with you, the officers, and the members — at which point one of three things will happen:
- You will be presented for regular membership at the next regular meeting to be voted on by the members;
- Your probationary period will be extended, indicating we have not had an adequate opportunity to evaluate your progress;
- You will be informed that your services are no longer needed
