New EMS support vehicles will help save lives!

More lifesaving tools are coming to Ozaukee and Sheboygan Counties, thanks to donors of the When Minutes Matter campaign! Aurora Health Care Foundation launched the $570,000 When Minutes Matter campaign to improve infrastructure and emergency medical training so more people in the community can be empowered with lifesaving tools, when minutes — even seconds count. The campaign wrapped up in December 2016, and now funds are being used to purchase new resources to improve emergency care, including two new EMS support vehicles.

EMS support vehicles are equipped with medical equipment and other supplies.

These emergency medical vehicles will help to provide immediate physician-led, on-scene response to provide specialized advanced medical care for the most severely injured; and also allow for real-time education and quality assurance for EMS responders.

This is just one of the key areas supported by the When Minutes Matter campaign to empower people in Ozaukee and Sheboygan counties with lifesaving resources. The campaign includes Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD), community CPR and Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) training sessions, AED assessment and placement, as well as a SimBaby/patient simulator for training.

The goal of this campaign is to bring the entire community together to eliminate those critical moments that a patient goes without care while waiting for emergency responders to arrive. We are truly grateful for donor support of this campaign. Your gifts will help save lives– When Minutes Matter!
