Welcome to NAVAC!
Emergency care has sure changed since 1970 when NAVAC had its humble start in the basement of the North Syracuse Police Station. Back then, we responded to about 500 calls a year with 15 volunteers and the single vehicle that was donated by Fergerson Funeral Home. Training was minimal, but the drive to serve our community was unstoppable.
Today, our over 100 volunteers and approximately 40 compensated staff respond to nearly 6,000 calls annually. Our people are highly skilled experts in out-of-hospital emergency medical care. The tools that we use to bring the emergency room to you are more sophisticated so as to provide the best medical care possible.
Emergency calls are the heart of NAVAC's mission. But we offer much more for the safety and health of our community. NAVAC offers first aid and CPR classes, Wilderness First Aid classes, and safe driving courses and assistance to area firefighters.
This is but a brief summary of what NAVAC does. Please take a few moments to "get to know" NAVAC by reviewing this web site. I'm sure you will see that as we have been a leader in EMS and changed with the time, the one thing that has not changed is that unstoppable passion to serve our community.
