The Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps., Inc. (WVAC) is there for you when you need us. WVAC’s annual fundraising drive is underway. Be our partner in saving lives!

Who We Are: WVAC is a team of more than 50 certified Emergency Medical Technicians and
Emergency Medical Responders.

  • Our purpose is to provide the highest quality prehospital emergency medical care.
  • For 37 years, we have provided the primary emergency medical service in town.
  • Our volunteers donate 18, 500 service hours per year to the people of Wilton.
  • Our annual call volume is increasing at a rate of 9% annually (1,350 calls in 2012).

What We Do: WVAC is on call for you and your family 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, we are actively involved in the community we serve, as we provide:

  • Complimentary “Hands- Only” CPR training to residents
  • Standby assistance at local sporting and civic events
  • Safety education to Town organizations such as SafeRides
  • A monthly health awareness column for the Wilton Bulletin

How Your Contribution Helps Us Serve You: The Town of Wilton pays our Worker’s Compensation Insurance premium as required by State Statute, and less than 10% of our operating expenses. We depend on the generosity of the community we serve to help defray such expenses as:

  • The purchase ($250,000) and maintenance of our ambulances
  • The acquisition of technologically advanced medical and communications equipment
  • Continuing education and training for our members
