REMOTE
EMERGENCIES

What Happens When…

You’re at a remote cabin or worksite and there is a medical emergency.

You’ve planned a trip to your favorite remote hunting or fishing site, or maybe you’ve prepared for a weekend of backcountry skiing, snow machining or 4-wheeling. The gear is packed, your phone is charged, and you’re ready to go – but have you taken a moment to think about what you will do if something goes wrong? What will happen if you or a member of your party suffers an injury or serious illness?

Every day, LifeMed Alaska evacuates seriously ill and injured persons from Alaska’s remote wilderness to advanced medical care.  We work closely with local emergency responders, Coast Guard, National Guard and Air Force helicopters and other medevac providers to coordinate the best response to any medical incident.

 

When and How to Call

LifeMed Alaska’s rapid transport can be beneficial for persons experiencing painful or life-threatening conditions like chest pain, difficulty breathing, unconsciousness, hypothermia, uncontrolled bleeding or fractures.

In any emergency, first dial 9-1-1 – even if your location cannot be accessed by road. Local dispatchers are best able to determine your exact location and how you can best be reached. If an air ambulance is a beneficial option, they will activate LifeMed Alaska.

LifeMed Alaska can also be contacted directly at 1-800-478-LIFE.  Our dispatcher’s will help determine your location and send the closest resources.
