"Today the Assembly honored Jim and other first responders like him from across the state."
MADISON – Today, Representative Dave Considine (D-Baraboo) honored Dane County District One EMS Director Jim Wick as the First Responder of the Year for the 81st Assembly District. Jim was invited onto the Assembly floor for a ceremony and received a citation for the award.
In August, Representative Considine asked municipalities in the 81st Assembly District to each nominate a first responder for the upcoming First Responder of the Year ceremony. The office received nominations for four outstanding first responders: Alan Wildman, Matthew Koepp, Bob Henry, and Jim Wick. Representative Considine issued the following statement on today’s proceedings:
“I am proud to represent Jim Wick and every other first responder in the 81st Assembly District. First responders work tirelessly to provide each of us with a safe community. I am incredibly grateful for Jim Wick, who is receiving the First Responder of the Year Award for the 81st Assembly District, and for James Hambrecht, Matthew Koepp, and Bob Henry who were each nominated for this award as well. As is true in so many professions, these citizens represent many who deserve to be honored and rewarded for their work.”
“As the Dane County District One EMS Director, Jim Wick leads one of the largest volunteer EMT crews in the area. Jim has also built a reputation as a compassionate and dedicated provider for pre-hospital emergency care. Today the Assembly honored Jim and other first responders like him from across the state. I personally thanked Jim for his diligent work after the proceedings today. I commend Jim and each first responder for their service.
