North Fork Ambulance Auxiliary

Formed July 1, 2019


First formed as the North Fork Ambulance Service Association in 1969, this group of dedicated volunteers has been challenged with providing reliable ambulance service and quality care with the fastest response time possible to the residents and visitors of the North Fork valley. Over the past 50 years, growing from just 60 calls per year to over 800 calls per year, this service was funded through membership, grants, donations and ambulance transport fees. Up until January of 2019 this vital service had never received public funding. We are happy to report a Special District has been formed by the voters and public funding is allowing ambulance service to continue.

While no longer providing ambulance service, this 50-year old nonprofit is excited to pass the torch and move forward with a new name, North Fork Ambulance Auxiliary, and a new mission.
