The Minnesota Rural EMS Resource was established in 2019 to identify, evaluate, and communicate resources available to rural ambulance services in support of their sustainability efforts.

In 2022, The Rural Resource Center worked to perform a Gaps Analysis, focused on resources that could be beneficial to rural EMS services.
