EMT'S Prayer

Grant me the wisdom so that I may treat those of your children that lay at my feet. Let my hands be gentle, sure and swift to impart to them your sacred gift.

Let me see only a patient's need not their color, race or creed. Help me always to be my best even when it's on my hours rest.

Grant me the insight to understand why patients of mine are going to die. Let me remember that when they do there is a wonderful life in Heaven with You.

Lord, if in the time of duty I should fall help my family to hold their heads tall. For it was You who decided that I should be one of your chosen few, an EMT.  Amen.

Gillett Area Ambulance Service has provided an ongoing Community Service for almost 55 years, ever since 1955 when members of the Gillett Civic Club recognized the need for a rescue squad and trained some of their members in Advanced First Aid. A donated panel truck carried equipment, and rescue operations began in 1957. In the early years, patients were transported in the local hearse, as was the case in many communities. Later a larger truck was purchased, which was capable of transporting patients as well as carrying equipment. After passage of the National Highway Safety Act of l966, Wisconsin began to upgrade pre-hospital care standards, and began training Emergency Medical Technicians. Many Rescue Squad volunteers were among the first in the State to become EMT’s. In l973, Gillett Area Ambulance Service was incorporated and the Rescue Squad became part of the ambulance service.

Many new skills have been added over the years, along with a variety of new equipment, to help us better serve the people of the area. Today, as always, members continue to upgrade their training thru refresher classes, seminars and training sessions. Over the past few years, a group of EMT’s have been trained to administer IV’s and related therapies. GAAS, Inc. is proud to be providing this higher level of care to the people we serve.

Gillett Area Ambulance Service presently serves the City of Gillett, Village of Suring and Towns of Breed, Gillett, Green Valley, How, Maple Valley and Underhill. Three modern, fully equipped ambulances are available to transport patients, from our new main station on Park Street in Gillett and the second station at the firehouse in Suring. A rescue sled and all-season ATV are available for snowmobile or ATV accidents, as well as providing access to someone who may have been injured in the woods, a farm field, or other areas not easily reached by the ambulance.
