  • All Marinette and Menominee County EMS (rescue squads) are in Critical need of volunteers! 

Many of the agencies are running at critically low level of personnel and are in significant need of additional individuals to support the continued operation of services.  Without additional help some squads may be forced to combine services, resulting in ambulances responding from further away or convert to a career/paid operation increasing costs to the public. 

The Town of Amberg is served by Pembine-Dunbar-Beecher Rescue Squad and Wausaukee Rescue Squad.  In order to provide the quality service we expect please volunteer to become an vehicle driver, emergency medical responder, or EMT. You do not need to be an an EMR or EMT to join, drivers are always in need and training is provided for every role!

Requirements for becoming a member include: Reside in the area or be available on a routine basis; Be at least 17 years of age; Hold a valid driver’s license; complete a background screening process.

Time requirements: Work 2-3 shifts per month (6-8 hour block of time), and participate in monthly training and meetings.
