Non-Emergency Services

  • First aid for minor injuries. People coming to the GVA base (View a map) or calling 911 are treated for minor injuries. Occasionally, our base is unmanned but there is a phone at the front door to call 911 for assistance. There is no charge from GVA unless a patient transport becomes necessary.
  • Blood pressure. Taken at the base (View a map) without charge whenever a crew is available.
  • Crutches, canes and walkers. Loaned without charge to Greece residents who come to the base (View a map). For other medical equipment, contact the Greece Ridge Lions Club at 340-7105, and leave a message.
  • Medical assistance. We can provide help without charge for people who have fallen without injury or who need assistance from a car into their home. If we have people available at our base, we'll be happy to come to assist you, but this service is not always available. We can be reached by calling 227-2073, ext. 2. We are able to provide this service only in the North Greece and Lake Shore fire districts. (View a Monroe County fire district map.) Remember that if your need becomes urgent, you can always get help by calling 911.
  • Interfacility transfers. GVA can perform transfers, in which a patient is transported from one medical facility to another when this is required for their care. This service is requested by the medical personnel at the originating facility, but the patient or their family can request GVA. There is a charge for this service.
  • Transport by ambulance from hospital to home or hospice. Must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance so a special crew can be scheduled. There is a charge for this service. Call 227-2073 ext. 2.
  • Standby at events. With pre-arrangement, an ambulance and crew will stand by at local events. We are limited to events in the North Greece, Lake Shore and Ridge Road fire districts. (View a Monroe County fire district map.) There is no charge unless a patient transport becomes necessary. Call us at 227-2073 ext. 2.
  • Ambulance demonstrations. Special arrangements can be made for tours of the GVA base or for an ambulance to go to a school, nursing home or other group facility to acquaint people with the ambulance and equipment. Call us at 227-2073 ext. 2 for information and to make arrangements. No, we do not have fire engines.
