  • Our service area is larger than the state of Massachusetts. North Memorial Ambulance Service has nine ambulance regions across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Our services area contains urban, rural and super rural communities. 
  • We provide every level of care. Throughout our service area, North Memorial Ambulance Service is licensed to provide every level of care from wheelchair to helicopter service. 

 In the outstate regions, paramedics receive specialized critical transport training to allow them to handle many patients with complex medical conditions.  This includes administering blood products, using ventilators and other technology to monitor and control oxygenation, and administration of medications. 

Community Outreach Program

North Memorial is the host for the annual host for the Minnesota Public Safety Awards, a program that honors individuals cross Minnesota who have distinguished themselves through acts of dedication or heroism and who might otherwise go unrecognized.  Awards are presented by officials from the State of Minnesota, law enforcement, EMS and the fires service. NMAS has been presenting these awards for 29 years.

The goal of North Memorial Heart Safe Communities is to make our communities a safer place to live, work and play by reducing the number of sudden cardiac arrest deaths by implementing public access defibrillators throughout the community.  This is in conjunction with improving SCA (sudden cardiac arrest) awareness, widespread CPR & AED training which in turn will strengthen what the American Heart Association has called the “chain of survival.  For more information, please contact heartsafe@northmemorial.com or call the Main Phone Number: 763-581-9920.
