About Us

The Deer-Grove EMS Association exists to help the Deer-Grove EMS District provide higher quality equipment to the members of the service than what the District's budget can afford. We also provide retention awards to members to thank them for their service to the District.

The Association's membership includes all members of Deer-Grove EMS. Together we provide the backbone of the original founding of Deer-Grove EMS, to provide a high level of service to our communities, and strive for excellence in all that we do. We raise funds through an annual letter campaign and various activities throughout the year.

2018 is a milestone year. Deer Grove EMS Association will be hosting an open house on Sunday, May 20, 2018, for the public to celebrate 40 years of EMS Service in our district. Current and past members will have a chance to connect along with the businesses, families, and visitors within our district to commemorate 40 years. This event will take place at the Cottage Grove Station from 11 AM to 2 PM. Free lunch available.

To honor our founding members who worked hard developing the foundation of Deer Grove in the mid-1970s, along with our current staff who are carrying on the work in present day, will gather for a special night of recognition at our Founder's Banquet on July 30th.

Calendar of Events

Volunteer ~ Deer-Grove EMS Needs YOU!

Deer-Grove EMS is a unique provider of ALS care in Dane County. We utilize a blend of volunteers, full time paramedics, and LTEs to staff two ambulances within our district. Throughout the year, we recruit for any or all of the above personnel. For more information regarding any of the employment or volunteer opportunities, or to apply, please visit the District web site at http://www.deergroveems.com.

We can also use volunteers to help us with our special events throughout the year. Contact us at dgemsa@deergroveems.com if you would like to help.


The Deer-Grove EMS Association exists to help our members. We accomplish this solely on donations we receive as a result of our fund raising efforts. Please consider donating to the Association, as every dollar we take in goes to new equipment, member retention or to promote member morale. The Deer-Grove EMS Association is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization so your donation is tax deductable.
