On January 16, 2018 we lost a dear friend and colleague. Rick Wold was an EMT with St. Croix EMS serving our community since November of 2003. In the past couple of years, while no longer providing patient care, he remained a valued member of our department and avid supporter. In addition to being an EMT, Rick was also a very talented photographer and video producer. He used those talents to create numerous videos for our department. The video, “When Minutes Count”, featured on our website was one of Rick’s creations. His storytelling, sense of humor, and warm heart will be greatly missed.
Rick received the esteemed St. Croix EMS Dan O’Connell Performer of the Year award in 2002 and Western Wisconsin Regional Trauma Advisory Council Partner in EMS Award in 2008 for his work on “When Minutes Count”.
