The Algoma Rescue’s resources were stretched earlier this week with emergency calls but mutual assistance from neighboring rescues saved the day. On Monday, over a twelve hour period, Algoma Rescue responded to six emergency medical incidents in their coverage area. EMS Director Kelly Koss says his volunteers helped Luxemburg Rescue when they were out on two calls, and Kewaunee Rescue covered Algoma Rescue when they were called out on two other calls later that day.
Koss says certain protocols are set up amongst departments in the area that they know when assistance will be needed. He added that he is very proud of the Algoma Rescue personnel that have always stepped up when necessary in times of peril while serving Algoma and Kewaunee County.
