July 4th is a time to celebrate our independence, have family gatherings, outdoor cooking and to enjoy the great weather. Please remember that fireworks of any kind can be extremely dangerous and should be left to the professionals. A list of local firework shows can be found here.
From our GVAS family to yours, please be safe and have a wonderful Holiday weekend!
Welcome to the online home of Gates Volunteer Ambulance Service, Inc. Our agency provides emergency medical service and transportation to the residents of Gates, Ogden, Spencerport and Parma New York. With a membership of approximately 216 trained, professional responders, we're ready to answer your call for help.
But we're more than just emergency transportation. We understand that the key to being healthy is keeping each other safe in the first place. That’s why we offer many prevention services for our residents, including a weekly blood pressure clinic and one of the first child safety seat checks in the area.
After answering nearly 7,500 calls for help each year, chances are you or someone you know have met the professionals of GVAS.
