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.)

What Do I Need to Nominate a Star of Life?
Nominations close July 1!

  • Full name as it should appear on any publication or award.
  • Unique email address—Please don't use the same email for Stars and Hosts, it will cause information to be overwritten in the database. If your Star doesn't have an email, just use a fake email.
  • Headshot photo—A well-lit, smiling smartphone snap against a plain background is fine!
  • Official job title
  • Brief bio—Where was your Star born? Family? Kids? Pets? Hobbies? What makes this star so exceptional? This could include a specific patient save, an act of compassion or leadership, sustained community impact, or something else. This bio will be used to help elected officials understand who they are meeting with and why mobile healthcare is important. Download tips for writing Star bios.
