CLARK, NJ - During a medical emergency, people instinctively know to dial 911 for help. What they don’t think about is what it takes to keep the members of the Clark Volunteer Emergency Squad equipped and ready to serve the community.

George R. Olear, Trustee and Head of the Holiday Fund Drive Committee for the CVES chatted with TAPinto Clark recently about the organization’s Annual Holiday Fund Drive.

According to Olear, the CVES counts on donations from Clark residents, businesses and even the township to purchase medical equipment, ambulances, insurances and to cover other operating expenses.
