Rockin' The Prairie 2015

Saturday August 8th, 2015

Back Home Boys, and Tragic Americans open things up!


The Brice Prairie First Responders began in 1983, started by Ron & Linda Kane along with Steve Hammes. 27 years later, we still are serving our community based on their original vision. All members are volunteers; we don't have a paid staff, and don't keep regular office hours. Membership experience ranges from EMT's, Emergency Medical Responders, a registered nurse, a paramedic, lifeguard, and a few firefighters. In addition to the medical training, all members have had extensive training in Ice Rescue; many are trained in Mass Casualty Incidents, Railroad Response, Rope Rescue, and Hazmat Awareness.

We respond to approximately 50 emergency calls a year ranging from a minor medical assist, car accidents & water rescue to multi-day searches of land and water, and sudden cardiac arrest. Our primary coverage area includes Brice Prairie, parts of the state bike trail, and a large portion of Lake Onalaska and the Mississippi River. We also participate with other neighboring communities when needed for search and rescue efforts or mutual aid, and are a member of MABAS Wisconsin Division 134. Most of us respond directly from home, providing emergency care prior to the arrival of Tri-State Ambulance.

It is our honor to improve the quality of life and safety of our community. We participate in the annual river cleanup, provide assistance and support to the Bike Race/ Run Walks held in the summer and many other events. We have all of you to thank for your wonderful support and contributions. That has allowed us to use your generous donations to purchase an inflatable ice/water rescue boat and replace an aging vehicle to tow the boats. We do accept donations, and we also generate funds by collecting your aluminum cans at our building, selling bottled soda and water, as well as our Annual "Rockin' the Prairie" bash, which is held the second weekend in August (mark your calendars now, it's the week before Kornfest!). Our building is located on County Road ZN at County Road ZZ, (next to the new Brice Prairie Pub and Eatery).

Looking for a way to serve your community? We're always looking for the right addition to our team. Prior experience isn't necessary, we'll get you into the right training. For more information, please email: or leave a message on our machine: 608-781-5707. More information and photos are available on our Facebook Page:

The Brice Prairie First Responders would like to thank everyone for you support of our Rockin' the Prairie event.

Your support allows us to purchase equipment that could help save a life.

Past purchases include an inflatable ice rescue boat, a newer vehicle, further training, upgrades to our communication equipment to meet new FCC mandates, increased training and capital improvements to our facilities.

Rockin' the Prairie 2015 will be held Saturday August 8th
