Wausaukee Rescue Squad Inc.

The Wausaukee Rescue Squad  incorporated in 2021 as a non-profit and is now serves the Towns of Amberg,  as a paid emergency medical service provider.

Background:

Wausaukee Rescue Squad Inc. was formed in 1960 as a volunteer organization.  Over the years the organization grew to over 30 active members.  In recent years volunteers have dwindled to  8 members with only 4 doing most of the hours. (8760 total hours that must be covered (24 hours a day x 365 days a year = 8760 total hours). Two people were doing 140+ hours per week and one member doing 70+ hours while working a full time job. Our members were getting burnt out and a change was needed.  If we pay high enough wages and offer a 40 hour week with no overtime we felt that we could get employees in to fill the schedule. Therefore Wausaukee Rescue Squad members decided to become a full time employee paid organization.
