Today the Emergency Medical Service Division operates three ambulances around the clock. A forth ambulance was added under Mayor Barse’s administration. It works during the 12 heaviest call volume hours. This is called a power shift. A field supervision component is strong in ongoing quality improvement. It exceeds minimum state standards and aptly answers calls at the national standard for response times. The community views Vineland EMS as an asset. VEMS has the support of the governing body when needed to carry out its mission of providing pre-hospital emergency medical care.
In 2003 the State of New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services recognized Vineland EMS as the Public Provider of the year. Several of Vineland’s EMTs have received personal nominations for state recognition as well. Millard Hahn was recognized by the state as EMT of the year. EMS Chief Kelly Soracco began as Chief on July 1, 2020 following in succession of Chief Al Lincks (retired) who served Vineland EMS for over 38 years, and whose name has become synonymous with Vineland EMS.
