MAVAC Wins "Real Heroes" Award from the American Red Cross
In April 2014, the Marathon Area Volunteer Ambulance Corps was awarded the American Red Cross "Real Heroes" Award for their efforts to save the life of a local farmer who was critically injured in a farming accident that amputated his arm. The award was sponsored by the Cortland Regional Medical Center and members of the MAVAC crew attended an awards breakfast held at Greek Peak Resort.
J.M. McDonald Foundation Awards MAVAC a $15,000 Grant for Fly-Car Project
In November 2014, MAVAC was awarded a $15,000 grant from the J.M. McDonald Foundation to support the purchase of a new SUV to replace its existing ALS fly car. The grant will allow MAVAC to continue its highly successful rapid-response ALS fly-car program. This program was first initiated in 2010 when MAVAC received a separate $17,000 grant from the J.M. McDonald Foundation to purchase a 12-lead cardiac monitor to equip the vehicle. The fly car is used primarily for mutual aid emergency calls to neighboring ambulance districts and on any call where an imminent threat to life exists.
