NAVAC provides Basic and Advanced Life Support ambulance services to a 64 square mile area located within the North Syracuse Central School District which includes Hancock International Airport. We partner with 8 fire departments and as part of Onondaga County’s 911 system will respond anywhere we are requested to provide mutual aid. In addition to our headquarters at 603 North Main Street, we post ambulances at the Mattydale Fire Department and South Bay Fire Department to allow for a rapid response to any location in our service district. We also partner with LifeNet to provide ground transportation for their patients in need of the trauma and specialty medical care available at our local hospitals. NAVAC responds to over 6,500 emergency calls a year.
