2008 EMS Olympics
The UW Health Emergency Education Center, in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin Office of Continuing Professional Development, sponsored the 2008 EMS Olympics in June.
Participating EMS services were scored on their EMT level of practice in different emergency scenarios, and an award was given at each station.
Medals and a plaque were awarded to the overall winner, Divine Savior EMS Service from Portage.
