The Kiryas Joel Volunteer Ambulance Corps answered some 350 mutual aid advanced life support calls in 2018, the vast majority of them with the corps’ primary paramedic supervisor responding.
As a result, Orange County named Avroham Flohr as ALS Paramedic of the Year.
The KJ Ambulance Corps is one of only a few volunteer advanced life support first responders in the county.
Last year, it responded to mutual aid calls to all corners of the county including from Greenwood Lake to Port Jervis, Wallkill to Tuxedo and West Point.
The ambulance corps was founded by Morris Steinberg who remains its director.
