Michigamme and Spurr residents and vistors alike continue to reap the benefits of having a top notch First Responder team here. Since it's inception in 1978, forty three persons have served as responders. Our EMS volunteers work in cooperation with the Ishpeming Ambulance Service, now run by Bell Memorial Hopital. Our EMS have received extensive traing in emergency medicine. We know that often our lives depend upon their abilities. Theirs is a difficult and stressful job and our communities are truly grateful for their dedication.
