Oshkosh Fire Department Receives Wisconsin Emergency Medical Services of the Year Award

OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) – The Oshkosh Fire Department has been honored with an award from the Wisconsin Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Association.

The department received the 2022 Emergency Medical Service of the Year award, largely due to its “falls prevention initiatives.”

The real key to the success of this initiative is the Oshkosh Fire Department’s EMS service. Chief Stanley and Division Chief (Chuck) Hable have created a culture of concern for those they serve by building a foundation of trust in the community. Department members dedicated their time to professionally and empathetically explaining the initiative to patients and families, which made all the difference in this successful and important prevention effort.
