SAVAC celebrates 40th anniversary


When members of Oswego’s Student Association Volunteer Ambulance Corps, SAVAC, first rolled out on a call on a “crisp, cold day in January 1972,” they started a tradition still going strong today.SAVAC is the first totally student-funded, student-built, student-manned and student-trained ambulance corps in the nation.
The distinctions are important, say founding members Ed Balaban ’73 and Charlie Flood ’72 because other colleges lay claims to the oldest corps dating to the same era, but only Oswego’s is totally student-centered.
