Since 1970, Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corps has been providing emergency medical services to the community. COCVAC has always been supported by our volunteer base, and many of our volunteers live and work in the communities they serve, making them especially dedicated to going above and beyond. As of 2020, COCVAC has a main station in Clark Mills (Clinton), as well as satellite stations in Whitesboro and Oriskany Falls.
Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corps provides volunteer-based emergency medical services and primary ambulance coverage for more than 10 towns and villages in Oneida County. As a training center, we are also actively engaged in educating the next generation of Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics, as well as providing CPR and First Aid classes for the general public.
COCVAC welcomes volunteers of all levels of experience, including Drivers, EMT's, Critical Care Technicians, and Paramedics. No previous experience is required, and in fact many of our volunteers begin with no medical or emergency service experience at all! COCVAC has a comprehensive training program that provides all new volunteers with the skills and knowledge they need. The only requirements for volunteering are possession of a valid drivers license, a commitment of 24 flexible volunteer hours per month, and a cooperative and positive attitude.
In exchange for your generosity, you will:
-Become part of a close-knit "family" of members
-Have access to free continuing education and state-level training
