In 1952 a group of Montclair residents, concerned for the safety and well being of their friends and neighbors, joined together to form the Montclair Ambulance Unit.
Over sixty years later, the dedication to the residents of Montclair stands as strong as it did when the first meeting was gaveled into session in December of 1952 at the Montclair Municipal Building.
Since the launch of the new MVAU.org in January of 2014 we have welcomed over 100,000 guests to our site, no small accomplishment by any means. Since then Montclair Ambulance Unit has grown more than ever before expanding our services with the Community Outreach Program, Special Operations, Be Ready! Montclair and so much more.
With that in mind we have decided to change things up on MVAU.org with a more streamilined site and enhanced visitor experience. While we are getting things ready we will be suspending updates on MVAU.org. Don't worry, we wont leave you "out in the cold" so to speak. You can still follow us on social media on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. All the news we would normally put on MVAU.org will grace our social media offerings.
Thanks for your understanding and keep your eyes out for the new and improved MVAU.org!
