Dane County District One EMS
Serving Black Earth and Mazomanie
County District One EMS was formed in 1977 when the growth of this area made
it apparent that a real need existed for a service to provide emergency
basic life-support, care, and transport to an advanced life-support
facility. This service was designed to provide such aid with all due care
and treatment en route. Since the beginning, volunteers have proudly staffed
District One EMS and served its 5600 residents. Six municipalities in an
area of some 85 sq. miles in the northwest section of Dane County Wisconsin
include the villages and townships of Black Earth and Mazomanie, along with
sections of Berry and Vermont townships. Currently, District One EMS is
licensed and its members are trained to the highest basic level of the
Wisconsin Emergency Medical Technician. Advanced Skills include albuterol,
glucagon, epinephrine, advanced airway, 12-lead EKG, and defibrillation.
Some 325 calls are responded to each year with transport to four different
emergency rooms within a 25-mile radius. Two Med Flight Helicopters from the
University Hospital in Madison are available to transport the most seriously
ill or injured patients.
Six appointed board members govern District One EMS, one from each municipality, and oversee the daily operations of the District Director. Currently, 54 volunteers staff “Rescue 28” and train monthly to fulfill all recertifications and continuing education requirements.
