Rocky Hill Volunteer Ambulance Association has been a leader in Connecticut's Emergency Medical Services community since our inception in 1972. Extending from the vision of nine dedicated town residents, the RHVAA is proud to continue our mission of providing the residents of Rocky Hill with high quality, advanced emergency medical care.
We currently consist of over 70 dedicated volunteers, 3 Ambulances, 1 all-terrain vehicle and a paramedic fly car all work out of our headquarters on Main Street.
The Rocky Hill Volunteer Ambulance would like to thank everyone who has answered our call for assistance. Our dedicated volunteers know the risk and continue to respond to people in need during this difficult time. As everyone is aware, the Coronavirus pandemic has been taxing the medical services across the United States. While we maintain a good inventory, we appreciate donations of any and all additional supplies.
We hope you stay safe!
Training and Education
Training meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursday of the month. The training meetings are beneficial for keeping our members up to date with the latest protocols and procedures.
