EMS Chief Brian Zwiebel
Welcome to Burlington Rescue Squad in Burlington, WI.
The squad is solely funded by the Burlington Rotary Club. The members of the Burlington Rescue Squad are a group of true volunteers that donate their time and efforts to the Burlington community. The only reward these people get is the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping their fellow mankind in a state of emergency. These people get up in the middle of the night and on the worst days in extreme weather just to help out. These individuals give about 700 hours a year of their own time in responding to calls and training. They do not ask for any pay, the only thing we ask is that next time you see and or hear a siren please look out for us as we are just out there trying to help someone in need.
If you are interested in joining, please download an application and fill it out and send it in. We would be happy to talk to you about joining. Or call and leave a message and someone will contact you.
