Our Mission

 The Vermont Ambulance Association is the lead organization serving the needs of its members in the emergency and non-emergency ambulance and medical transportation industry. The VAA advocates the highest quality patient care through ethical and sound business practices, advancing the interests of its members in important legislative, educational, regulatory and reimbursement issues.

Our Objectives are:
To promote the science and art of pre-hospital care
 within the state of Vermont;

To afford our members opportunities for the
interchange of ideas with respect to the science and art of pre-hospital care, and the publication of
information thereon;

To establish co-operative liaison activities with other associations, and governmental agencies interested
in the improvement of emergency medical care for the benefit of all providers of ambulance service in general;

To do all things incidental or conductive to the attainment of the above named objectives for the benefit of the
members of the association

In carrying out this mission, the VAA is committed to meet the needs of its members in the volunteer, non-profit
for-profit and fire-based sectors.
