Wabasha’s Community Ambulance Service has 15 volunteer members who provide 24-hour ambulance service to the community. All members are state certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s). The service has two fully equipped ambulances. Services include first response and transfer services of patients to local health facilities, and also those facilities located in the Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Rochester areas.
The Wabasha Ambulance Service also provides service to surrounding communities and townships. A new ambulance garage and training facility was constructed in 1991.
Air ambulance service is provided to our community by the Mayo I helicopter from the Mayo Clinic and St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN, which is just 40 miles away.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) involves a combination of mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing and chest compression. CPR keeps oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and other vital organs until appropriate medical treatment can restore a normal heart rhythm.The Wabasha Ambulance Service provides CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) classes to local business. The cost is $8.00 per person and includes all training materials.
