Rice Lake Fire Department’s new Emergency Transport Service

The Rice Lake Fire Department’s new Emergency Transport Service responded to four calls within seven days of activation.

Within 12 hours of the activation of its new Emergency Transport Service, the Rice Lake Fire Department put the ambulance into action, transporting a patient to a medical facility and preventing a round robin of mutual aid calls in Barron County.

But the road to get to that point was long and had its ups and downs as some members of the City Council expressed reluctance to launch a service already provided to Rice Lake by the private sector.
