Would you like to be a part of our team?

As the last all volunteer ambulance corps in Hudson County, we value anyone who wants to dedicate time to civic service. With the modern day challenges of multiple jobs, both caregivers out of the house, and a struggle to provide the necessities of life, Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps understands how important it is to have a flexible schedule, minimal entry level qualifications (i.e. CPR), and multiple training opportunities. The Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps is lucky to have a group of integral and dedicated members providing the best emergency care to the City of Hoboken.

Membership Requirements

All members are required to complete at minimum four shifts per month which equates to between 16 and 32 hours of volunteer time. We ask that members also attend monthly meetings (first Thursday of each month), be enrolled in an EMT Basic class within six months of joining, and participate in special events and trainings as required. Being part of an ambulance service requires a large amount of time both on and off the ambulance to ensure we can always provide the best possible care to our patients.

After six months of completing our minimum requirements you will be eligible to come off probation and be an active voting member of the organization.

Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps. does offer the New Jersey EMT Voucher which allows eligible members the opportunity to take a EMT class at no charge to them. We are happy to talk about how to take advantage of this opportunity during your interview with us.
