Mission, Vision, Goals & Objectives
The Perinton Volunteer Ambulance Corps is committed to providing the highest quality emergency medical services available to the communities we serve. At the same time, we will facilitate the education, training, and understanding of injury and illness prevention as well as our role in the response, treatment, and transportation of the sick and injured.
The professionals of this organization will strive to meet the ever-changing nature of healthcare, emergency services, and public safety arenas through continuous training, incorporation of new technologies, and interagency cooperation.
Through planning, staffing, and resourcing, we will provide the leadership, EMS management, and services necessary to fulfill our commitment to the community we serve, while assisting neighbors as requested.
We will do this in a fiscally responsible manner and with the professionalism expected from those we serve. By doing so, we will be an integral and irreplaceable component of the Fairport and Perinton communities.
VISION OF THE FUTURE
The Perinton Volunteer Ambulance Corps is continuously working to improve its operations through training and member preparation. We want to provide the best possible total patient care and community service. Through increased involvement with other organizations and resources in the community, we will be an excellent provider of emergency services.
The Perinton Volunteer Ambulance Corps will be an active and positive contributor in every community we serve, such as the pre-hospital care, emergency services, medical, and Fairport/Perinton Communities.
Through training, we will continually prepare our members to provide the best possible service. We will also utilize the latest and best equipment that is available in the industry.
We will focus on recruitment and retention of the best and brightest volunteers. We will do this by making the Perinton Volunteer Ambulance Corps a positive, comfortable, and professional atmosphere where people will want to contribute their time. The Corps will be worthy of the time and effort of the members, and will utilize that in a positive and productive manner so that people feel that their contributions are appreciated and their time has been well spent.
We will provide adequate information and education for the community to increase awareness of our service and proper prevention of illness and injury. Through increased prevention strategies, we will help residents reduce the incidence of injury and illness and thereby decrease the demand for our services.
