The Rutherford First Aid-Ambulance Corps (RFAAC) is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing Emergency Medical Care services 24 hours a day to the Borough of Rutherford, New Jersey, as well as mutual aid to neighboring towns.
The RFAAC has an active membership of approximately 40 volunteers, 30 of which perform ambulance service in the field. With the exception of Building Maintenance, Insurance, and Fuel, the Ambulance Corps receives no support from the municipal government. The organization is funded strictly through contributions from the public.
The RFAAC provides emergency care at no charge to everyone. We respond to approximately 1,400 calls per year.
Members active in the EMS role must be accredited by the New Jersey State Department of Health as an Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B).
The RFAAC also participates in the EMT-Defibrillator program in conjunction with our Advanced Life Support (ALS) agency, Hackensack University Medical Center , and is a member of the 24th district of the New Jersey State First Aid Council.
