Ground Program

Ground Ambulance Services

LifeMed's on-demand ground ambulance service is a necessary part of the medical transportation infrastructure in Southcentral Alaska.  Our Advanced Life Support (ALS) providers perform transport between medical and long-term care facilities, and provide the ground transportation between the airport and hospital for LifeMed and other air ambulance providers.  LifeMed’s ALS-staffed ground ambulances are dispatched by the Anchorage Fire Department’s Dispatch Center.        

Benefits include:

  • Relieving pressure on ground ambulance services allowing them to focus on 911 emergency calls
  • Reducing the need for hospitals to provide escort staff for critical care patient transfers
  • Providing ground transportation services for air ambulance companies in Anchorage

Service Area:  Municipality of Anchorage, north to Houston, south to Seward and the Kenai area.
