We are CAVAC

Since 1974 CAVAC has been serving the greater Cazenovia community 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.  Cazenovia Area Volunteer Ambulance Corps wouldn’t exist without the volunteers that put in uncounted hours to help our neighbors in need as well as those passing through.  Please consider volunteering as a driver, crew coordinator, or EMT.  Financial donations are also appreciated to help fund our equipment purchases, supplies, and training. To learn about CAVAC billing and insurance practices click here.
