    Summer fun

    As we approach the end of summer, it's been amazing to look at where we've been—so far.

    At the end of June, three of our staff members participated in the 2018 National EMS Memorial Bike Ride on the Midwest Route. The five-day journey began in St. Paul on June 25 and ended in Chicago on June 30. This year was particularly poignant; we honored Marina DeSteno-Challeen, a colleague from HealthEast Ambulance Service, who was recently killed in the line of duty.

    During July, we participated in multiple community events, including the Bloomington SummerFete, various Safety Camps and the Anoka Food Truck Festival, just to name a few.

    In addition, part of our leadership group attended the Pinnacle EMS Conference in Arizona and experienced the "dry heat" while meeting with our EMS colleagues from around the country.

    We're sure August will be just as busy and wish you a safe and enjoyable summer.
