The WI Office of Rural Health has comprehensive news and funding items related to rural healthcare on the Rural Reporter page. Please visit us there for a wealth of information.
However, the Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub) provides two news feeds specific to EMS, and we offer those below for your use. The feeds are live and will likely contain different information each time you view this page.
RHIhub is a federally funded agency that gathers and distributes national rural health and human services information online, including a dedicated rural EMS page. Because RHIhub aggregates information across states, the feeds are not Wisconsin specific but will contain Wisconsin information when it is available.

Compares urban and rural hospital location, with data for Critical Access Hospitals and rural non-CAHs. Includes data for rural and urban populations as well as poverty level, previous healthcare use, and other demographics.
Grants to assist local career, combination, and volunteer fire departments with staffing and deployment capabilities in order to respond to emergencies and ensure that communities have adequate protection from fire and fire-related hazards. -- Federal Emergency Management Agency
