Two EMTs

Jim and Wendy Rowe, a husband-wife EMT team working for Crawford County's Frederic Fire Department, graduated in 2023 with their Associate of Applied Science - EMS/Paramedic degrees. "Our goal is to get your mind off of whatever you're going through, even if it's just for a few seconds," Jim said. "Once you're in the back of our ambulance, you're family."
