    Who is a Star of Life?

    We know that EMS saves, sustains, and touches lives every day. Let's shine a light on all of the important work we do by recognizing those who have resuscitated a patient, improved public health, had a positive impact in the community, or shown exceptional care and compassion.

    Wisconsin Paramedics, EMTs, Dispatchers, and other EMS professionals who have gone above and beyond can be nominated as Stars of Life. 
    *(Stars from outside of the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin's membership are considered pending until approved by the PAAW board.)
