Critical for Visitor Safety: New Park Ambulances

The importance of rapid emergency response.

Ambulances in the Bay

Almost everything about Grand Canyon National Park is big—the sweeping vistas, the depth of the canyon, the altitude at both rims, and even the number of visitors.

However, due to these large numbers, the park sees more than 1,000 medical emergencies each year. When these events occur, highly trained staff use an aging fleet of ambulances to come to the rescue. Sometimes, a speedy response means the difference between life and death for an injured visitor.

The park needs two additional ambulances immediately. Given the urgent nature of both this timeline and the park’s need for a robust emergency response, seeking federal funding is not a viable option.

Your Gift: Keeping visitors safe in the hour of their greatest need.

Your generous gift will provide:

  • Two new ambulances that will allow park staff to quickly and effectively provide assistance to park visitors in medical emergencies.
