Stateline Farm Rescue was founded to fulfill the need for farm and agricultural rescue training in the Upper Midwest, and is based in the Wisconsin-Illinois stateline area. Each member of our highly-trained instructor team has many years of fire and rescue experience, and each is currently active in fire service. In addition, these instructors have all either worked on or owned their own farm operation; and each has excellent working knowledge of modern farm equipment, along with the hazards involved with dangerous farm occupations.
Why Stateline Farm Rescue?
"I can't thank Stateline Farm Rescue enough for demonstrating to our Rural Medical Education (RMED) Program students the live-saving work that goes into a farm rescue. Our future rural doctors now have a better understanding of on-farm emergency procedures and how rescue personnel literally mean the difference between life & death in these situations. One RMED student told me after the mock tractor roll over accident and rescue demonstration that as a doctor, he will advocate for farm-related emergency training for local rescue personnel once he begins practicing in a rural community. We, as a rural medical education program, look forward to many years of cooperation with Stateline Farm Rescue as we work together to make rural America a healthy and safe place to live."
