Our organization is bound by the by-laws that were set in place in 1964, when the Gates Volunteer Ambulance was founded. Over the past 49 years, these laws have help to manage our business. They provide for the building, the equipment and the personnel to manage them.

The line officer in charge of the day-to-day operations of the ambulance is the Chief. He or she has the responsibility to ensure that the ambulances are staffed, operational and have all the appropriate equipment. The Chief is the key person in charge of managing the resources that Gates Ambulance has. The Deputy Chief reports directly to the Chief and may act on his behalf in his absence. Additionally there is a Operations Manager and Deputy Operations Manager that help run this department. Operations may be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots.
