Join Us on Saturday, May 12th
For 25 years, local volunteers have been removing trash and debris from our local waterways. We want to celebrate our 25th anniversary in a big way. This year, we are going to combine forces with The La Crosse Urban Stormwater Group.
Brice Prairie EMS & Rescue will be hosting the CleanUp efforts at the Fred Funk Landing from 8-Noon.
From 4-7pm, volunteers and their families are invited to Pearl Street Brewery to celebrate our clean up efforts and become educated about stormwater runoff, and how it pollutes the water in the La Crosse area. Join us for food, refreshments and live music!
Volunteers receive a t-shirt, a chance for prizes and food from Sweet Lou Barbeque
Volunteers pick up trash and debris from La Crosse area waters from 8am-12pm
Stormwater & River Clean Up Celebration at Pearl Street Brewery 4pm-7pm

Who are we: We are Brice Prairie EMS and Rescue. We are your neighbors and co-workers of Brice Prairie. For over 30 years we continue to be a volunteer First Responder organization.
What do we do: We respond to 9-1-1 calls on Brice Prairie and the Great River State Bike/Snowmobile Trail to provide first-on-scene emergency medical care, water/ice rescue for Lake Onalaska and the Black River Bottoms, and provide mutual assistance for nearby area emergencies.
What we need: Brice Prairie First Responders will be holding their 10th annual “Rockin’ the Prairie” fundraiser featuring the musical act “Pop Rocks” on Saturday, August 26th. BPER holds this event in an effort to raise funds to help cover the costs associated with running the organization. These costs range from continued training for our volunteers to the purchase of needed equipment and supplies. This year we would like to put all volunteers through an advanced skills class, purchase an airway dummy, and improve our water and ice rescue equipment.
