To become a certified Emergency Medical Technician, each member receives extensive initial training. They must also pass continuing education courses every year and undergo a supervised probationary period.
In addition to providing emergency care to the residents of Wyckoff, we also supply backup coverage to our surrounding communities and standby at numerous functions. In 2007 we established a bike unit to help provide emergency care during large-scale events. The Wyckoff Ambulance Corps also works closely with the Wyckoff Fire Department. At every working fire and rescue operation, the corps provides medical support and rehabilitation services.
In 2008, the Wyckoff Ambulance Corps established a Community Education division to provide CPR and first aid training to the community. Our certified CPR instructors have trained scout leaders, coaches, lifeguards, expectant parents and business owners. Every month we provide blood pressure screening at the YMCA.
The majority of our funding comes from the generous donations of residents. If you would like to make a donation, visit the “Donate” page.

The Wyckoff Ambulance Corps is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing the residents of Wyckoff with emergency care. Established in 1926 by the American Legion, the corps began as a small transport service. Today we have more than 50 highly trained members, two state-of-the-art ambulances, and responded to over 1,100 emergencies last year.
