FIRST RESPONDERS
The Grant First Responders were formed in January, 1998 with eight members. The current roster has five. If you’d like to join, please contact Jim Yetter at 715-213-2000 or Jerry Reinwand at 715-570-8720. You do not need a medical background, just a dedication for helping your fellow neighbors in times of need.  Your commitment is simply to respond to calls whenever you are available, plus a team meeting the second Monday of each month.

Call 9-1-1 in an emergency
