Deer Park Volunteer Ambulance
Deer Park Volunteer Ambulance is staffed primarily with members of the community who volunteer their time to provide medical coverage to fellow citizens.
Our ambulances are fully-equipped to provide Intermediate and Advanced Life Support. DPVA responds to more than 4000 emergency and non-emergency calls each year, a number that continues to grow. DPVA provides Advanced Life Support to more than 630 square miles and 3 different counties within eastern Washington, including north Spokane, south Stevens and south Pend'Orielle.
Paid and Volunteer personnel staff our ambulances 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year. All personnel are certified through the State of Washington Department of Health and are required to maintain their certifications annually through a On-going Training and Evaluation Program (OTEP). All personnel are overseen by a board-certified, state-approved emergency physician known as a Medical Director.
Deer Park Volunteer Ambulance (DPVA) is the oldest volunteer ambulance organization in the state of Washington, opening its doors in 1948.
Volunteer Ambulance in Deer Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-tax based organization. Therefore, we receive no tax and/or monetary based reimbursement from the areas we serve. Our ability to provide services and purchase vital lifesaving equipment such as ambulances, cardiac monitors, drugs and pumps is dependent on insurance company reimbursements, donations and membership enrollments from the residents we care for.
- EMT and Paramedics are always needed. For qualifications, please see our website.
