Code Blue

Code Blue was developed in 1999 to help rural Alaskan communities fund some of their essential EMS equipment and patient transportation needs. State, federal, local government and private foundation funding has come together in a powerful partnership to help emergency medical services. The Code Blue project has helped many communities, by helping to replace worn out or aging equipment. Struggling volunteer services have gotten new equipment they might never have been able to afford. EMS providers are energized by the show of support. Don't forget to fill out an Annual EMS Survey, required for this application.


Southern Region is committed to assisting current and Potential EMS Providers throughout the region in receiving EMS education.
