It was June 24th, 2012 and it was a proud day in the life of the Flatlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps in Brooklyn South as they got to show off their brand new 2010 Ford e350 6.0 Diesel Ambulance with a 2012 MEDTEC box in a motorcade throughout their entire response area accompanied by many of their fellow Volunteer Ambulance Squads from Brooklyn and Queens.
The Flatlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps was founded in 1975 by several community members who “Just wanted a better response time than the New York City EMS could provide”
They took possession of their Brand New 2012 MEDTEC ambulance and celebrated with a motorcade throughout the neighborhood.
The Flatlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps will celebrate almost 37 years serving the communities of Mill Basin- Bergen Beach – Georgetowne – Flatlands – Futurama and Marine Park all located in the Brooklyn South part of the Borough.
Currently the Flatlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps Captain is Joseph Marcellino – First Lieutenant/Chief of Operations Peter Bojmal and Fleet Manager/Safety Officer George Aschoff
