The Louisiana Rural Ambulance Alliance (LRAA) was formed in 1995 by Emergency Medical Service Providers who deliver services to the rural population of Louisiana citizens.  The mission of the LRAA was, and remains so today, to serve as a convening point for EMS providers with similar delivery issues to receive education on issues specific to their delivery challenges, provide networking opportunities, and identify opporunities to work collectively for the benefit of EMS in Louisiana.

Today, the Mission of the Louisiana Rural Ambulance Alliance reflects the ideals of the founders.  The staff, board of directors, and members are committed:

  • to promoting emergency medical transport as a distant concern in Louisiana;

  • to serving as a forum or unified voice for healthcare providers, public officials, healthcare workers, educators and consumers working to improve emergency medical transport in Louisiana;

  • to providing a forum for the exchange and distribution of ideas and information related to the improvement of emergency medical transport;

  • to serving as an advocate for emergency medical transport, promoting improved health status and improvement to the health system for residents of Louisiana; and

  • to encouraging the development of appropriate health resources for Louisiana.
