Atlantic Partners EMS Regional Overview
Atlantic Partners EMS (APEMS) is contracted by the State of Maine to serve as the administrative office for four of Maine’s six EMS Regions:
- Region 1
Southern Maine (York, Cumberland, and Sagadahoc Counties)

In total, we serve 251 EMS and Dispatch agencies and 24 Hospitals.
Each region has a Regional Advisory Council (RAC) made up of the member agencies in each area, and each RAC has a Chair who runs the meetings. Regions 3, 4 & 6 meet on a quarterly basis in March, June, September, and December as follows:
2nd Thursday of the month at 9am KV Regional Office, Winslow
2nd Wednesday of the month at 3pm PSTC, EMCC, Bangor

Region 1 meets every other month in September, November, January, March, May & July. The meeting locations rotate throughout the region at host facilities on the 4th Wednesday of the designated month at 9am.
The primary purpose of the RAC meetings are to serve as a communication medium between the EMS administrative system and the local agencies.
