Cambridge Area EMS is a combination EMS department comprised of full-time, part-time, and volunteer/paid-on-call staff. Licensed at the paramedic level, we are able to provide the highest level of pre-hospital care available to the members and visitors of the community. We have paramedics, AEMTs, and EMTs on staff that are highly trained through the Madison Emergency Physicians Group medical direction.
We serve approximately 70 square miles in Dane and Jefferson Counties with an estimated population of 7,000. Our district includes the Village of Cambridge, Village of Rockdale, Town of Christiana, and portions of the Town of Lake Mills and Town of Oakland. Our district also includes Lake Ripley, Jefferson Speedway, and CamRock County Park. More than 500,000 commuters per week travel on US Hwy 12, US Hwy 18, WI Hwy 73, and I-90/39 in our district.
We go on approximately 600+ medical, traumatic, and fire emergencies per year. With every passing year, we are seeing an increase in call numbers and a higher need for advanced preshospital medical services. We transport our patients to many local hospitals, including St. Mary's Madison, Unity Point Meriter, UW Hospital, Fort Atkinson, and Stoughton. Within this network of hospitals, our patients have access to level 1 and level 2 trauma centers, comprehensive stroke and heart attack care, and pediatric specialists.
We are happy to be able to provide care to the community and visitors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
