It’s the season of giving. And through volunteer work with Sparta Ambulance Squad or the Sparta Fire Department, you can give back to your community year-round.

Both organizations are in need of volunteers to keep our community safe.

At Sparta Ambulance Squad (SAS), volunteers ages 16 and up, with all talents, are encouraged to join the team of caring, professional first responders. Founded in 1947, Sparta Ambulance Squad serves our community 24 hours a day. In 2021, the team responded to 1,270 calls.

The department operates out of three locations: headquarters on Woodport Rd., “Sparta Lake” on Glen Rd., and “The Ridge,” on Stanhope Rd.
