Albany EMS

Albany EMS was founded in 1975 under the name of the Albany Community Health Planning Council. Through the years, Albany EMS has been at the forefront of emergency pre-hospital care in Green County.

In 2000, Albany EMS took a step forward in providing optimal patient care by becoming certified as an Advanced EMT Service. As an AEMT unit, certified crew members can administer IV therapy, prescribed cardiac drugs such as Nitro, albuterol for breathing difficulties and IV Dextrose for diabetic emergencies. These advance care techniques will greatly enhance the pre-hospital care for all patients in need of emergent medical care.  In 2019, under flexible staffing legislation, current paramedics with approval from the medical director can operate at the paramedic level when an approved paramedic is on the ambulance.  At minimum, we provide Advanced EMT level service on each call. 

In the spring of 2016, with great support and assistance given by the whole community, Albany EMS was able to purchase and welcome a new ambulance.  This ambulance features a self-loading power cot which decreases the potential for back injuries to the EMTs.  The ambulance also carries a cardiac monitor capable of defibrillation and acquiring EKG’s and an automatic CPR device that provides constant quality compressions to a patient in cardiac arrest.

As a service, Albany EMS offers three levels of patient care:

  •     Emergency Medical Responder, which can provide skills such as airway management and trauma care.
  •     Emergency Medical Technicians, which can provide airway management, trauma care, basic cardiac care and give some medications.
  •     Advanced Emergency Technician, which can provide the care of a basic EMT but can also administer more medications and provide IV therapy.

Monthly trainings, special conferences, and other educational resources allow crew members to stay up to date in the latest developments of emergency medicine. In 2000, Albany EMS was one of three finalists statewide for “The EMS Service of the Year” awarded by the Wisconsin EMS Association.

Albany EMS is always in search of new members to enter this challenging and rewarding field.  For more information on joining The Albany EMS team you may Email albanyems@yahoo.com
