O.V.A.C. holds an annual fund drive to raise money for the replacement of our ambulances and for upgrading our equipment such as Video laryngoscope, and CPR Machines. Costs of running the day to day operation have increased greatly since our founding in 1958. At that time, you could purchase and outfit an ambulance for under $10,000. Today, the cost of purchasing and stocking an ALS ambulance is well over $185,000.  With your continued support over the years we have been able to upgrade our ambulances every 2-3 years.
