  • Radio Ad Returns For EMS Week

    The Wisconsin EMS Association has released a radio public service announcement (PSA) to help promote emergency medical services during EMS Week. The 60 second, professionally-produced, commercial calls attention to the dedicated efforts of Wisconsin’s emergency responders and ambulance services. WEMSA members and visitors can take a listen to the radio spot by clicking the audio player below. Broadcast audio files are available for download in both professional WAV and MP3 formats by clicking the button below.

    WEMSA Member assistance in securing radio play will help show citizens across Wisconsin just how important EMS is to the local community. Help WEMSA spread the word to your location radio stations so they can help support you! Smaller radio stations in rural communities are often more willing to air PSAs due to lower commercial loads. Hometown radio stations who hear from local EMS providers, ambulance services and fire departments are more likely to download and air the radio ads during regular programming. WEMSA members are asked to contact their local radio stations to encourage them to air the spots during the month of May and especially during National EMS Week, May 17-23, 2015 as well as year-round.
