Our Mission

The North Dakota EMS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that began in 2004 after receiving a modest bequest from Dale Severson, an EMS leader in North Dakota. The establishing vision of the Foundation was to promote and support prehospital emergency medical services across the great state of North Dakota. The Foundation is dedicated to the state's EMS providers, ambulance services and quick response units; and it places a major emphasis on the continued viability of individual rural providers and response groups.
