Vernon Emergency Medical Services (VEMS) is the unified organization that has evolved from the merger of two volunteer-run ambulance squads—Vernon Township Ambulance Squad (VTAS) and the Glenwood Pochuck Volunteer Ambulance Corps (GPVAC)—as of 2024. In collaboration with Atlantic Mobile Health, VEMS ensures round-the-clock emergency medical services (EMS) coverage for the residents of Vernon Township, with a significant contribution from dedicated volunteers.

Strategically positioned across the township, VEMS operates three stations to optimize response times and coverage. Station 1 is situated on Breakneck Road, Station 2 is conveniently located off State Route 94 behind the Dairy Queen, and Station 3 is positioned on Drew Mountain Road at the intersection of County Route 565.

Vernon Emergency Medical Services is a nonprofit organization that focuses on providing professional compassionate community care. We believe in being fully involved with the community and all its activities. Vernon Emergency Medical Services will continue to recruit and retain members by showing pride in our organization and supporting each member in their personal growth.
