History
    

Established in 1979, the Mohawk Valley Ambulance Corps Inc., affectionately known throughout the community as MOVAC, has grown to provide primary ambulance services to communities in both Herkimer and Fulton Counties of Central New York State.  Founded as a 501c(3) charitable non profit organization, our mission is to provide ambulance service and primary EMS response to the villages of Herkimer, Mohawk and Dolgeville, and to the towns of Herkimer, German Flatts (excluding the village of Ilion), Manheim, Salisbury, Oppenheim and Stratford.

 

MOVAC has transitioned from our respected roots of solely volunteer medical staff coverage to a 24/7/365 career staff employer.  MOVAC currently employs 60 full and part time professional EMS providers and pays homage to our roots through a volunteer executive board of directors that are local community leaders dispersed throughout the communities we serve.

 

MOVAC will always remain a community based and supported organization of the Mohawk Valley that shares compassion with our neighbors and the communities we serve.  

 

We respond to 911 and private line requests for both emergency and non-emergency transport requests through the utilization of 6 state of the art ambulances.  We also provide rapid advanced paramedic level intercept services with our paramedic fly car, provide firefighter rehabilitation and medical operational support services through the utilization of our special operations trailer, provide off-road and remote EMS response through use of our EMS Gator UTV, and provide Medical Response Team (MRT) support to SWAT Special Response Team (SRT) police agencies of Herkimer County.

 

MOVAC currently operates 2 stations; Station 1 which is located in the village of Mohawk, and Station 2 which is located in the village of Dolgeville.
