Fundraiser goal reached to help Mount Horeb teens become EMTs

The Mount Horeb Area Joint Fire Department has exceeded its financial goal to develop an EMT class for area high school students.

The class is a first of its kind program and looks to inspire the next generation of emergency medical services technicians.

The program is a partnership of the Mount Horeb Area School District, Madison College and the Mount Horeb Area Joint Fire Department.

The Mount Horeb Area School District initially planned to cover class costs for six students, but nine seniors expressed an interest in enrolling.

To help cover the additional costs, a special fundraiser was launched through the State Bank of Cross Plains.

The goal was to raise $9,000, but as of Wednesday the fundraiser was closing in on around $11,500

Classes begin Tuesday and will go through December, according to the post.
