Resus­ci­ta­tion Acad­emy Logistics


Invi­ta­tions to attend the RA are extended to EMS lead­ers from Wash­ing­ton, Ore­gon, Alaska, Mon­tana, and Idaho. As space allows, atten­dees are accepted from EMS agen­cies that send a team of med­ical pro­gram director(s) and EMS oper­a­tions lead­er­ship by invi­ta­tion only.

Resus­ci­ta­tion Acad­e­mies are crop­ping up across the globe. A list of upcom­ing events is here.

We do not offer Con­tin­u­ing Edu­ca­tion cred­its for this course.


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

Shut­tle Express is a pop­u­lar option for get­ting from the air­port to the hotel.
Cab rides from the air­port to the hotel are approx­i­mately $65. Local cab com­pa­nies con­tact info…

Car rental

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

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, all slide pre­sen­ta­tions and hand­outs will be made avail­able after the course on Drop­box. 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.


Atten­dees 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 us 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.
