FROM COPPER RIVER EMS 
MAY 2ND, 2024 


Like many residents in and around the Copper River Basin, the Copper River EMS Council (CREMS) has been concerned about the possibility that the contract for local EMS service ends on June 30, 2024 and will not be renewed.

As confirmed by Cross Road Health Ministries, the question is no longer "What if the current ambulance service, Delta Medical Transport, is not able to secure enough additional funding to continue operations in the Copper River Service area?

The question is now "What do we do?"

CREMS would like to discuss a potential back-up plan to provide 911 ambulance service throughout the region.

CREMS recognizes that any ambulance service in this region will require tremendous community support from many sources big and small – commitments and leaps of faith from local organizations, businesses and residents.

CREMS also believes this region can sustain a local ambulance service wihtout any one organization or business shouldering an unbearable burden. 

Please feel free to reach out to CREMS' administrator, Jolene Nashlund, with any question you may hove or if you would like to schedule a meeting with CREMS leadership.

The Copper River EMS Council, Inc. Board of Directors unanimously supports an open local dialogue regarding the fu9ture sustainability of EMS in the Copper River Service Area. The Board also supports including the following proposal in that discussion.

Board Members (volunteer);  Mike McQueen, President & Baord Chair: Sue Roscovious, Vice President and Secretary; Jan Maslen, Treasurer: Alysia Hancock, Director: Natalie George, Director: Matt Lorenz, Executive Director (volunteer).

CREMS Administrator, Jolene Nashlund
