Back by Popular Demand: EMS Olympics


EMS Olympics will be back on Thursday evening. This event provides an individual or team the opportunity to work together in a controlled simulation. Test your skills against other EMS teams from around Wisconsin in this interesting and instructional activity. Open to all EMS crews, teams will be evaluated on speed and accuracy in a variety of emergency scenarios. It's fun, non-threatening and educational.
