DARLINGTON - The City of Darlington Police Department and Rural Medical Ambulance Service have partnered under the 2015 Wisconsin Act 113 to provide emergency medical services to Darlington area citizens, according to a news release from Darlington Police Chief Jason King. The 2015 Wisconsin Act 113 went into effect 18 months ago and lowered state requirements on ambulance staffing from two Emergency Medical Technicians to one, provided the EMT is partnered with an Emergency Medical Responder. An EMR, also known as a First Responder, is part of the EMS system but has less training than an EMT.
