Forks Ambulance is always in search of passionate and dedicated EMT basics, intermediates, and paramedics. Forks Ambulance is historically known as Ray Ellis Memorial Volunteer Ambulance Corps also known as REMVAC, and still to this day governs the ambulance department under REMVAC. Forks Ambulance works with the hospital and receives support from Forks Community Hospital. With the partnership between REMVAC and Forks Community Hospital all of our volunteers are paid by an on call and per call basis while the hospital also employs two full time EMTs during the week to run 911 calls, mutual aid transports for the surrounding area, and interfacility transports out of Forks Hospital. REMVAC is responsible for a large area of approximately 850sq. miles within Clallam and Jefferson County.
All of our crew members are state licensed and nationally certified as an EMT, Advanced EMT, or Paramedic and maintain their certifications through continued required medical training and continued rescue training.
