We respond to EMS calls in all 5 fire districts in the Town of Esopus: Port Ewen, Esopus, Rifton, St. Remy, and Connelly. TEVAS is made up of roughly 65 active members and 18 social members. As an EMS agency, we have 3 Ambulances and 1 Flycar to provide basic life support (BLS) care and transport for our patients.
