Barneveld Area Rescue Squad
The Barneveld Area Rescue Squad was started in 1977. We serve the Villages of Barneveld and Ridgeway, and Brigham Township along with part of the Ridgeway Township. Our coverage area encompasses approximately 150 square miles. We also "mutual aid" the emergency services in Mt. Horeb, Dodgeville, Hollandale, and Arena. We assist those services if they are unable to respond or need additional ambulances.
We responded to about 204 calls in 2008. Our members are volunteers and trained at the EMT-Basic or EMT-Intermediate level. All are Nationally Registered EMTs. We provide 24 hours, 365 days per year coverage at the Intermediate level.
We hold a monthly training and business meeting the second Monday of each month. There are additional training events throughout the year.
We maintain a roster of approximately 20 EMTs.
