Our funding

While we are a 100% volunteer organization, which means we spend $0 on staffing, operating an ambulance service is costly. We have to replenish trauma supplies, refill oxygen tanks, Epipens, maintain defibrillators, and eventually replace aging equipment. For example, an ambulance stretcher costs over $15,000. An ambulance comes with the $200,000 price tag.

Medical care and transportation we provide is 100% free for our patients. We never bill you or your insurance. We completely rely on the only source of funding - donations by River Edge residents. Your generosity has kept us operating for 70 years.
