First Responders

Center First Responders

The Town of Center First Responders responded to 66 emergency medical calls in 2012.  The majority of the calls were for town residents with medical problems.

Dawn Van Camp resigned from the first responders for personal reasons.  Dianna Langner, Kyle Hofacker and Ben Zemple left the first responders because they moved out of the Town.  Thank you Dawn, Dianna, Kyle, and Ben for your time and dedication to the Center First Responders.  You will be missed.

We have three new members.  They are Liz Kurey, Lori Pynenberg, and Josh Lawrence.  They have been active with responding to calls and have been doing a very good job.

Any town residents over the age of 18 who would like to join the First Responders or have any questions please call me at (920) 757-6286.

In January of 2014 the Center First Responders will be required to complete recertification training.  These classes are required every other year before we can renew our license.

The reflective address signs have been very helpful for us to locate homes quickly.  Please make sure that your sign remains visible from both directions.  Also at night, please turn on an outside light so we can see where to enter the home.  In an emergency every minute counts.

Studies have shown the importance of the use of CPR on cardiac arrest patients.  Survival rate increases the earlier a person in cardiac arrest is given CPR.  If you have not done so already please take a CPR course.  If you would like to take a CPR class please call me at 920-757-6286.

The current members of the Center First Responders are Jesse Ashauer, Cindy Filz, Sandra Fischer, Ryan Gengler, Scott Janssen, Liz Kurey, Josh Lawrence, Kevin Pullen, Lori Pynenberg,  Keith Romenesko, Gary Timm, Sue VandenBerg, Dennis Van Handel, and Nick Ziegler
