Who are we: We are Brice Prairie EMS and Rescue. We are your neighbors and co-workers of Brice Prairie. For over 39 years we continue to be a volunteer First Responder organization.
What do we do: We respond to 9-1-1 calls on Brice Prairie and the Great River State Bike/Snowmobile Trail to provide first-on-scene emergency medical care, water/ice rescue for Lake Onalaska and the Black River Bottoms, and provide mutual assistance for nearby area emergencies.
What we need: Brice Prairie EMS and Rescue will be holding their 13th annual “Rockin’ the Prairie” fundraiser featuring Corey Wise on Saturday, August 27th. BPER holds this event in an effort to raise funds to help cover the costs associated with running the organization. These costs range from continued training for our volunteers to the purchase of needed equipment and supplies, putting all volunteers through an advanced skills class, purchase of an airway dummy, and improve our water and ice rescue equipment. This year we’re hoping to improve our rescue response with our donated Argo.
Donations can be made via PayPal or via check to:

The Brice Prairie First Responders would like to thank everyone for you support of our annual Rockin’ the Prairie party.
Your support allows us to purchase equipment that could help save a life.
Past purchases include an inflatable ice rescue boat, newer vehicles, further training, upgrades to our communication equipment to meet new FCC mandates, increased training, a new (to us) Rescue Vehicle, and capital improvements to our facilities.
The Brice Prairie First Responders do accept donations and have annual fund-raisers to help pay for expenses and equipment needed. In the past we’ve sold raffle tickets, sponsored a bass tournament, held chicken-q’s, had a dance, and placed a chain link bin next to our building to collect aluminum cans. Donations may be sent directly to us. Thank you for your continued support. Because of your generous donations, the life of your neighbor, a family member, or even your life may be saved.
