Caz ambulance corps moves into new home on Rt. 20

The Village of Cazenovia owns Carpenter's Barn and graciously provided CAVAC with our home for the past 36 years. CAVAC is not aware of what the village's future plans are for this building.

What is the Cazenovia Ambulance District?

CAVAC's Ambulance District is the same area covered by the Cazenovia School District which includes three townships and the Delphi Falls Fire District in Pompey.

What does the line on my town tax statement for the CAVAC Ambulance represent and how is this money spent?

The Ambulance District was originally set up to provided Advanced Life Support services for the Cazenovia district. Ambulance District tax money that CAVAC receives goes toward paying our paramedics, the Advanced Life Support supplies and workman's compensation insurance.

How is the new CAVAC facility being paid for?

The new facility reflects an important step in maintaining our ability to provide the very best possible emergency medical care. To pay for the new facility, CAVAC used the combination of a mortgage, savings from service call revenue, donations and nearly $100,000 in grants for needed equipment.

What volunteer opportunities are available at CAVAC?

CAVAC desires the new facility to serve as a viable symbol of this community's ability to care for itself for years to come. To achieve this goal, we need your help. As stated previously, CAVAC began with 300 volunteers. Today our volunteer ranks are less than 100. We have volunteer opportunities available as dispatchers, drivers and EMTs, as well as other general membership volunteer opportunities.

If you feel that volunteering is something that you would like to do, you can obtain an application by visiting cavacambulance.org, calling 655-9798 and requesting one be mailed, or stopping by CAVAC and speaking with an on-duty dispatcher to pick up an application.
