EMS Providers Call for Help Amid Staffing Shortage

Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers across the state of Wisconsin are going through a crisis amid low staffing and underfunding.

According to the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health, nearly 41% of EMS in the state are staffed by six or fewer people, with 21% of them being run by two to three staff members.

Rural EMS Outreach Program Manager James Small says, “If we don’t take a different path now, in five to ten years, there’s going to be many communities that don’t have any service.”
