Emergency Service You Can Count On

Critical Care Transport in Wisconsin Rapids, WI

About United Emergency Medical Response Services

United Emergency Medical Response dates back all the way to 1943 when it was originally founded as Higgins Ambulance Service. Since then, we have strived to constantly provide top quality patient care throughout Wisconsin Rapids, WI, and the surrounding areas. 

As a 911 provider, our scope of care ranges from EMT Basic up to Critical Care Paramedic. Our staff is certified and licensed in all areas, including CPR, ACLS, PALS, PHTLS, and AMLS. We always make sure that you will be transported by an appropriately licensed crew quickly and efficiently. We strictly follow statutes and protocols related to critical care transport and all other EMS license levels, so you can rest assured that the ambulance crew that’s transporting you will meet your specific needs. 

Since Wisconsin has a “home rule,” when you call 911 that service will give you the ambulance service contracted to your area-even if you request another service. If you choose to call United Emergency Medical Response directly, you will be transported by professionals who are the best in the business. We always treat our patients with the respect and dignity that they deserve.

Our community always comes first. We work with you when it comes to insurance companies. We accept insurance companies big and small, including EMS and Star of Life. It is a priority for the community to see us as a reliable and trustworthy company. We also provide standby assistance at events happening throughout the year, including Relay for Life and various tournaments. We also provide basic certification training courses for CPR for the community to take part in.
