Resuscitation Academy Logistics
Invitations to attend the RA are extended to EMS leaders from Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. As space allows, attendees are accepted from EMS agencies that send a team of medical program director(s) and EMS operations leadership.
Resuscitation Academies are cropping up across the globe. If you’re interested in finding out if there’s one near you, contact us.
The Resuscitation Academy is held in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, home to the Space Needle, Experience Music Project, and the Seattle Art Museum Sculpture Park. Belltown is served by Seattle Fire Department Station 2. This historic location was once the home of SFD’s Fire Alarm Center. Recently, it became the new location of the Academy.
The address is 2318 4th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98121.

From the airport
For those traveling from outside the area, renting a car is optional. The Academy sessions will all be in the same place. So, unless you want a car to tour Seattle in the evenings, you probably won’t need one.
There are pay lots surrounding the meeting venue. This website gives a few options. Rates range from $10 – 15/day.
Suggestions for your stay
Uniform or business casual. Comfortable walking shoes. A coat with a hood and/or umbrella.
Transportation to meetings
Participants are responsible for getting to the main meeting location. Bus, cab, private vehicle, or walking are all reasonable options.
Pen and paper
In an effort to save trees and landfill space, we will issue USB drives at the end of the week with all slide presentations and handouts. If you plan to take notes, please bring material to do so.
Food and Beverage
We will have a coffee service each morning. If you’re a water drinker, you may want to bring a reusable bottle for the drinking fountain.
We will be having a working lunch each day. Food will be provided by the Academy.
Fellows will be on their own for dinner each night with the exception of the faculty/attendee happy hour at a local restaurant.
Note: If you have food allergies or restrictions, email Ann Doll as soon as possible.
We were overwhelmed by more applicants than we are able to accommodate. Therefore, if you are unable to attend, please let me know as soon as possible so that someone from the waiting list may attend. On behalf of the Resuscitation Academy faculty, thank you for your interest in our program. We look forward to partnering with you in improving cardiac arrest survival in your community.
