On December 27, 2022, the City initiated the “Save Saint Paul’s EMS” fundraising campaign. To date, $2,480 has been raised to help fund EMS services.
On December 30, 2022, the Aleut Community of Saint Paul Island and the Central Bering Sea Fisherman’s Association donated enough funds to maintain EMS services by Delta Medical Transport for the month of January 2023. The City is urgently asking for donations in order to keep this critical service available to the community of Saint Paul. An additional $150,234 in funding is needed to provide EMS services to the community at BLS level for the remainder of 2023.
For its contribution, the City will continue to provide a vehicle, ambulance, and housing for the rotating EMT. Additionally, the City will handle permitting of the service, billing, and purchase of supplies.
