 OUR MISSION

The mission of the Wisconsin Emergency Medical Services Unit is to ensure that the highest quality and standards of pre-hospital emergency medical care is available to all citizens of and visitors to Wisconsin.

OUR VISION

Through leadership, support, and regulation, the EMS Unit ensures the development and maintenance of a high quality Emergency Medical Services delivery system for the State of Wisconsin. Its primary focus is to reduce both human suffering and economic loss from premature death and disability resulting from sudden illness or injury.
