New Berlin Village Board approves additional compensation for EMS services

NEW BERLIN The Village of New Berlin held its monthly board meeting on Tuesday, where they discussed additional compensation for volunteers of the Ambulance Service.

During the meeting, EMS Administrator Dale Barton requested additional compensation for ambulance drivers as well as the Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) crews. They work as a tier system, with ALS being at the top followed by BLS.

I would start with the BLS crew, Barton said. I believe the BLS crew right now are getting $10.50 to start. I think theyre worth a little bit more.

Barton said the members of the BLS crew arent on the schedule, they just fill in when he cant fill the ALS spots. Id like to see their rate of $10.50 go up to at least $12.
