BBAHC Summer EMT Availability

The Community Health Aide Program (CHAP) would like to share important information about the availability of EMTs within several BBAHC communities this summer: Ekuk, Igushik, South Naknek, and Ugashik. CHAP wants to ensure our communities are informed of this service and they have an option to call for emergency assistance during the summer dates listed. Please share this information with anyone who may benefit. Thank you.
