The Rock Valley Ambulance Association (RVAA) began in 1973 and today, has 26 volunteer members with a variety of skill levels, including EMTs, Paramedics, and RNs. The RVAA runs as a conditional Paramedic service, meaning the ambulance crew can operate at the Paramedic level when there is a Paramedic available. The Ambulance Association is under the medical direction of Dr. Paul DeJong. He approves the medical protocols used by the ambulance members and assists with training and quality improvement.
The Rock Valley Ambulance Association now averages over 330 calls a year, with about half of these being transfers from Hegg Health Center. The RVAA serves the community with 2 fully-equipped ambulances, a Gator, and a simulator for training. The Gator is used to respond to the Rock Valley trail system, where access is limited with large vehicles. It is also used for events with large crowds, such as football games and tractor pulls. The Ambulance Association responds jointly with Rock Valley Fire and Rescue to any motor vehicle accident or structure fire.
