ABOUT US


 

Southern Region Emergency Medical Services Council, Inc. is a non-profit corporation established in 1975 to serve as a regional resource center for the emergency medical services system in South central and Southwestern Alaska.

 

The region covers an area of 192,369 square miles, extending more than 2,000 miles across, from Cordova in the east to Attu Island in the west. The region serves 100 ambulance and first responder services from the biggest city to the smallest towns and villages, ranging in population size from 25 to 260,000. Two-thirds of those communities are very remote, and do not have access to the rest of the state by road.

Philosophies

We promote excellence in Emergency Medical Service throughout our Region by fostering self-sustaining EMS organizations that place their trust in us and look to us for guidance.

 

We provide information on new technologies, changing standards and the most up-to-date EMS practices. We enhance patient care through the highest quality instruction, continuing education, quality assurance programs, and training in management principles.

 

We encourage EMS personnel to become involved in regional, state and national organizations. We work together to further EMS, participate in its growth, and develop its standards.

 

We provide instructor training and resources to promote each community's independence, and where resources are limited, we assist communities through other means.
