About the Council
The mission of the Emergency Medical Services program in Alaska is to reduce both the human suffering and economic loss to society resulting from premature death and disability due to injuries and sudden illness. The Governor's Alaska Council on Emergency Medical Services, also known as "ACEMS," provides the Commissioner of the Department of Health and Social Services and the Governor with recommendations related to all aspects of EMS, including distribution of funding, and policy development. The Council:
- brings together technical resources, experience, and knowledge to assist and advise on the continued development of the EMS and trauma system in Alaska;
- advises the state EMS staff and EMS regional directors regarding public education and generation of broad community support for the goals of the EMS program;
- provides recommendations regarding EMS program policy and priorities; and
- reviews EMS or EMS-related program proposals on request of the Commissioner of the Department of Health and Social Services, the Director of the Division of Public Health, and EMS staff.
ACEMS was established by Alaska Statute 18.08 and meets two times a year to take action on issues affecting EMS in Alaska.
