Volunteer Ambulance Corps Needs Your Support

raizenDavid Raizen, President of the Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps sent the following letter to Scarsdale10583.com.

Dear Neighbor, Many Scarsdale residents do not submit donations of support because they mistakenly believe that Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps is funded by direct tax dollars. With no direct taxpayer support and an annual budget of $600,000, we are running in the red.

This year our annual fund drive has received an extremely poor response. We have received only 467 donations from the 5,356 households in our community.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to support your Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps by going to our website: ScarsdaleVAC.com and click donate, or send a check to PO Box 92, Scarsdale, NY 10583.

I also encourage anyone who is interested in learning about SVAC to email me at draizen@ScarsdaleVAC.com.

Sincerely,
Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps
David Raizen, President

Please donate on-line at www.ScarsdaleVAC.com

SVAC does bill insurance companies for transported call.We bill at the medicare rates. Of the 22 Paramedics, 17 are paid and 5 are volunteer. The budget for the paramedics salaries is around $300,000. The next largest expense is Workman's Comp Insurance, which is greater than $60,000. the third expense is liability/ auto insurance. David.

Does SVAC bill insurance companies for transport? If they do,given that it is part staffed by volunteers,it should not run in the red.
