Service Membership Benefits

Group Buying Program

Among the largest benefits of both Service & Corporate membership is the Wisconsin EMS Association Group Buying Program. No matter how large or small your annual budget may be, you are certain to save multiple times the cost of annual WEMSA membership with Group Buying. Get medical supplies at a fraction of typical prices. Purchase a qualifying new ambulance and receive a check for as much as thousands of dollars directly from WEMSA back to your organization. From defibrillators and AEDs to radios, pagers, ambulance billing, legal and employment products, you’ll save more than you could ever imagine just because you are a Wisconsin EMS Association Service or Corporate member.

Resource Kit

First offered in 1999, the Resource Kit (formerly called the CD Resource Kit) is available to all Service & Corporate members. It contains dozens upon dozens of policies, procedures, protocols, forms, contracts, job descriptions, check lists and much more. Now available on-line and constantly updated, these documents have all been approved by Wisconsin EMS Association attorneys and advisors. Simply select the forms that you need, customize them to your organization and you have a legally-approved form, that could have cost thousands of dollars to have an attorney draft for you from scratch, free of charge as part of your membership.

Real Representation

As an individual EMS organization, you can’t put a lobbyist in Madison to work and watch out for you every day, but we can. Throughout the years the Wisconsin EMS Association has saved EMS providers countless expense by successfully fighting proposed fees and fines for EMS, opposing needless and expensive equipment that could have been required on every ambulance, battling, stringent and often very costly legislation that could have significantly burdened EMS organizations. It was WEMSA who drove the legislation to create the Funding Assistance (FAP) Program, Length of Service Awards (LOSA) program, First Responder certification and license plates, paramedic staffing, absent from work while responding to an emergency protection, and many, many more legislative bills and rules over the years. Many times we mount these fights because our members asked us to. We often poll members to find out what they want us to do. With nearly 400 Service and Corporate members, we speak for the majority of Wisconsin EMS Providers – and legislators listen.

Added Programs and Benefits

As a Service or Corporate member you receive access to a variety of additional programs and benefits. These include programs like the Statewide Recruitment Drive that has helped to identify and create thousands of new EMTs and First Responders throughout Wisconsin and place them with EMS services of all types. WEMSA provides programs and resources for EMS leadership by creating specialized seminars and training, hosting important state-wide meetings, conference calls and webinars, and taking the lead on supporting EMS in Wisconsin. From television and radio interviews to magazines, newspapers, Internet articles, and even billboards, WEMSA helps to promote EMS and educate the general public on the importance of emergency medical services.

Group Buying Program

(Updated Links/Instructions coming soon)

Nearly all Service and Corporate members who use the Group Buying Program continue to save thousands of dollars each year – multiple times the annual cost of their WEMSA membership. Smaller services can significantly benefit because they don’t have to buy hundreds or thousands of items in order to save. All Group Buying pricing is good on single quantities. It’s easy to see how the Group Buying Program is worth the price of annual membership by itself.


Each Service and Corporate member of the Wisconsin EMS Association is automatically eligible to purchase through both the Wisconsin EMS Association and SAVVIK group buying programs. To access the purchase and pricing information, the main contact/service director must log-in to their account for each program.
