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 foundation’s vision 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.
Program Director, Mary Jund and Clinical Coordinator, Wayne Fahy were very excited to receive the news. “The students are well deserving and the recognition by the ND EMS Foundation is much appreciated.” Mary Jund.
