Bay Area Medical Center provides two paramedic-level teams that are available to respond to the needs of the community day or night. Our ambulance service operates four transporting ambulances and a quick response vehicle which is used to provide advanced life support (ALS) intercept services to outlying EMS agencies. BAMC’s primary service area for 911 responses includes the cities of Marinette and Peshtigo, Wis., and Menominee, Mich., as well as portions of the surrounding townships.
