CEO David Hartberg and BAHC Foundation Board Chair Jerry Berge present the donation.

Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics helped show its support of Boscobel Emergency Medical Services (BEMS) with a $2,500 contribution toward a new ambulance. 

BEMS provides around-the-clock pre-hospital care to more than 7,000 residents in 10 municipalities in Crawford and Grant counties. Also known as the Boscobel Rescue Squad, volunteer Emergency Medical Technicians provide treatment on scene for illness or trauma and ambulance transport to a hospital. BEMS operates independent from the Boscobel Fire Department.

BEMS needs the community's help replacing its second aging ambulance. Earlier this year, the organization purchased a new ambulance after 20 years of fundraising and cannot afford to replace a second one.

"These highly-trained and dedicated volunteers provide vital early emergency care. It's crucial they have a reliable vehicle equipped with the necessary medical tools to deliver life-saving care to residents of our communities," said Gundersen Boscobel Chief Executive Officer David Hartberg.

If you'd like to support the BEMS in their fundraising efforts, donations can be mailed to: Boscobel Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 12, Boscobel, WI 53805.
