EMS Toolkit

This EMS Toolkit is a set of resources developed for rural Emergency Medical Services (EMS) organizations, which are often run by volunteers. The toolkit addresses common issues that these important community entities face to keep their organizations staffed, funded and running smoothly.

Recruitment and Retention

This section includes resources that can help you attract new members and retain existing volunteers.

Funding and Finances

This section includes financial options you may not realize are available to EMS organizations.

Leadership and Management Resources

This section includes tools for day-to-day management tasks as well as the broader challenge of leadership -- both key for successful organizations.


If you have suggestions for additional resources or feedback about the toolkit, contact Rachel Gunsalus in the Office of Rural Health and Primary Care at rachel.gunsalus@state.mn.us or 651-201-4004.
