Jim Welch, the founder of Gold Cross Ambulance Service, and Barry Tomaras, founder of Waupaca Area Ambulance, were honored with the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin's Stars of Life award.

The men accepted the award Wednesday at the Wisconsin Stars of Life recognition program at the Tundra Lodge in Green Bay.

Welch, who lives in Little Chute, purchased Lindy's Ambulance in 1967 and changed the name to Gold Cross in 1969. He retired in 1990.

Tomaras, who lives in Waupaca, purchased Holly Ambulance in the mid-1970s and later changed the name to Waupaca Area Ambulance. In May 2013, Waupaca Area Ambulance merged with Gold Cross Ambulance.

Gold Cross responds to more than 15,000 calls each year.
