Updated:Nov 6,2014

Mission Lifeline Logo
As part of the Mission: Lifeline Minnesota Initiative, grants for 12-lead ECG equipment are available for eligible EMS agencies.

These grants are opened by region through an online application process. Grant applications are reviewed and scored by the EMS Advisory Committee and are awarded based on these scores and available funds.  

In addition to EMS 12-lead ECG equipment, Mission: Lifeline will also include an education component that will be made available to all EMS agencies starting in early 2014.

Also, a public education campaign on heart attack symptoms and the need to call 9-1-1 will be a key component to the Mission: Lifeline Initiative during the three year grant.

Mission: Lifeline Minnesota is focused on enhancing rural STEMI systems of care for hospitals and EMS agencies through these equipment grants, education and system devolvement.
