Support Our Lifesavers
To help build the new Ambulance Station and Education Center, Brookings Health System Foundation has launched the Support Our Lifesavers capital fundraising campaign. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to help offset 20% of the total building cost.
Giving Patients Their Best Chance
An early response to a medical emergency allows paramedics and EMTs to prolong life and give patients, like Medary Elementary Art Teacher Jennifer Moser, their best chance to receive definitive medical care.
Two years ago Brookings Health System's ambulance service was called to an accident along U.S. Highway 14 west of Volga. A vehicle had crossed the centerline and collided with Jennifer. She survived the crash despite numerous near-fatal injuries thanks to the quick response of emergency medical services.
Ambulance Station & Education Center
The new Ambulance Station and Education Center will at long-last give Brookings Ambulance a permanent home and headquarters. It's location along Yorkshire Drive is strategically placed to service the majority of call volume for both the city and county while maintaining strong access to respond to other advanced life support calls throughout the local area.
