Spending time in the wilderness and austere environments is fun and exciting.
AMP provides services to ensure your safety needs are met -
whether for pre-planned events or when things go awry.
A Brief History
AMP, a Maryland and Virginia recognized Wilderness EMS operational program, was founded in January 2019 by individuals passionate about bringing medicine to people in wilderness and austere environments.
To make this happen, the founders combined their expertise in wilderness and austere medicine, disaster medicine, wilderness EMS, search & rescue, wilderness mass gathering risk management, remote communications, international deployment, air operations, and field exercise development.
AMP, a non-profit organization, is a volunteer led organization. Learn more about our leadership team.
Now in its fourth year, AMP has provided support for events across three states. Events include pre-planned wilderness mass gatherings in Maryland and Virginia as well a missing person search in West Virginia. AMP has also provided community education.
The AMP Team is growing quickly. Learn more about becoming a member here.
During COVID-19, AMP is fully operational and prepared with personal protective equipment (PPE). We incorporate recommended safety precautions into all Missions and trainings. The team continues to train and is ready to meet your organization's needs. Contact us today to plan your event.
