As part of our commitment as a healthcare leader in the Town of Brighton, BVA offers a variety of services to help keep our community safe and healthy.
BVA offers classes in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), basic first aid, and other classes at our training center or possibly at your school or business. See our Class Descriptions and Scheduled Training Classes.
For more information, contact our Training Manager at (585) 271-2718, ext. 113.
Blood Pressure Screening
Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a key warning sign for many developing medical conditions and a substantial burden to the health care system. BVA offers free blood pressure checks at our base, or we can arrange for group screenings at your business or special event.
For blood pressure clinics or other services at community events, call us at (585) 271-2718.
BVA has wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and canes available for temporary (up to 30 days) loan to Brighton residents.
To find out if we have the equipment you need, call (585) 271-2718 and one of our staff members will assist you.
AEDs for Public Use
Because of a generous donation from the Kopp family, you can borrow an AED for sporting and community events within the Town of Brighton.
If you’re planning a 5/10K race, a fundraising walk, a school sporting event, a large public event or even a neighborhood block party, BVA may be able to provide an ambulance at your event in case someone has an injury.
Coverage for standby events depends on the availability of our personnel. Please contact us at least two (2) weeks in advance of your event to discuss your needs.
For services at community events, contact our Logistics Manager at (585) 271-2718.
Do you have an EMS Alert posted on your refrigerator or in an easy-to-access location? This handy card contains your personal and medical information for quick access during medical emergencies. If you are unable to communicate with our EMTs or Paramedics, this card will give us the important information we need to provide safe and effective treatment.
Stop by BVA for a complimentary EMS Alert, or you can download a copy here. We recommend that you have an EMS Alert for each member of your household, and you review it periodically to verify that the information is up to date.
Does your school, business, or organization want to learn more about BVA and what our EMTs and Paramedics do? We can arrange an on-site visit for your group.
For scheduling, contact our Public Information Coordinator at (585) 271-2718, ext. 8.
