AMBULANCE ASSOCIATION OF WEST VIRGINIA
The Ambulance Association of West Virginia (AAWV) is an organization dedicated to providing a unified voice to ambulance squads across West Virginia. Far too often ambulance squads are forgotten during conversations about public safety. The AAWV is one of three voting groups that collectively form the WV EMS Coalition. All West Virginia licensed ambulance squads are eligible for membership including ground, air, non-profit, county, for-profit, paid, volunteer, small and large squads
The role of the AAWV, in conjunction with the WV EMS Coalition, is to ensure that ambulance squads aren’t forgotten. The AAWV advocates for higher reimbursement rates from insurance companies, Medicaid and Medicare. It fights for improved policy and regulations by the Office of EMS. And the AAWV serves as your representative at the State Capitol helping ensure the interests of squads are protected in Charleston.
