Wilton Ambulance Calls Up Year-to-Year, In Need of Funding

Posted by:

Talk about privately funding a public service.

In their mission of supplying emergency medical attention and transportation to injured or ill people in the Wilton area, the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Inc. (WVAC) has seen a call volume increase of 9-percent annually–and yet less than 10-percent of operating costs are provided from town funds. When you put it in the perspective that your life may depend on the generosity of private donations from town residents to the WVAC, it can make your heart skip a bit–or at least make you catch your breath.

Donations to WVAC can be made payable to Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Inc. and sent to: P.O. Box 216, Wilton.
