We are writing in response to the article in last week’s issue (“Englewood Launches Hatzalah,” January 28, 2021) claiming our organization has “thrown [its] support behind the formation of a Hatzalah division in Englewood.” The leadership of Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps (TVAC) was not contacted by The Jewish Link for comment prior to the publishing of this article, and anyone quoted in the article made their comments as individuals and not as representatives of the Ambulance Corps.
TVAC stands firm in our commitment to provide emergency ambulance services to all of the residents of Teaneck, as we have for 82 years. We reaffirm our belief that the residents of Teaneck are best served by a single, inclusive ambulance corps. We take pride in the diversity and harmony of our township and are proud to be a part of this unity, both in our membership and the patients we serve.
Please continue to call 911 for all medical emergencies. We encourage all members of our community, regardless of race, religion or gender, to visit our website at www.teaneckambulance.org to learn more about joining and supporting our lifesaving cause.Eric M. Orgen, President
