How to Volunteer

Ambulance Services in Englewood have traditionally been provided by a highly motivated, skilled and dedicated group of Volunteers, who undergo, on their own time, an extensive training/educational course to become EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians). This is provided at no cost to the citizens of Englewood, and is a labor of love. It has become more and more difficult to find people interested in continuing this tradition of service to the community, and this endanger a way of life and will cost our taxpayers big money to replace with paid people. If you are interested in becoming an EMT and serving Englewood, please contact the corps at: Click on this link.

Founding

The Englewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps was founded on May 24, 1954 [1] by Edward Hasse, elected its first President [1], then the proprietor of Hasse Electric Company of Palisade Ave., and Joseph T. Carney who was elected Vice-President, [1], and others. The initial slate of officers were [1]:

  • President- Edward M. Hasse
  • Vice-President Joseph T. Carney
  • Treasurer & Funds - Alan Mattner
  • Supplies - Harry Mills
  • Liaison- George Harbison
  • Dispatcher- William Smith
  • Publicity - Mrs. Ruth Gutschmidt
  • Secretary- Mrs. Margaret Carter

History

The Ambulance corps managed all emergency calls for the city until June 23, 2009, when the City instituted a Fire Department division of Emergency Medical Services, so that the paid employees of the Fire Department could assume day time calls, due to the difficulties in finding volunteers for the Corps willing to assume day time duties. [2] Later, the Englewood Hospital assumed that responsibility.
