First Responder Fundraising
Public Access Defibrilation
The Elkhart Lake First Responders, in partnership with the Kohl Foundation, have placed Public Access Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) throughout the Village of Elkhart Lake and Town of Rhine. AED’s are lightweight, portable devices, which provide an electrical shock capable of restoring the normal heart rhythm of cardiac arrest victims. On-the-spot access to this device for people who suffer a cardiac arrest has been found to be a key to survival.
Other public education events include our booth at Downtown Night and our annual fish boil at the Elkhart Lake/Town of Rhine Fire Station.
We use the proceeds from these events to upgrade any equipment that may be outdated. We appreciate community and private donations to assist us with equipment replacement. Anyone interested in donating to the Elkhart Lake First Responders should contact the first responders at 876-3333 or EMS@elkhartlakewi.gov.
