Allina Health Emergency Medical Services is one of the region's largest ambulance and medical transport services.
We have had a busy summer here at Allina Health EMS (AHEMS)!
On top of our daily operations, we've participated in over 150 special events within our communities and beyond which ranged from county fairs to active shooter drills.
We also hosted an International
Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA) EMS Cyclist Course with the assistance of Minneapolis Airports Commission (MAC) and our leadership team met for our yearly retreat.
As summer draws to a close, AHEMS is not losing any steam going into the fall.
Pulse Check Conference is set for Sept. 21 and 22, 2017 in Prior Lake, MN and features a new addition, the EMS on Ice HockeyFest/Silent Auction. Proceeds from HockeyFest will benefit the
Strub Caulkins Center for Suicide Research.
The following week, we will be celebrating our quarterly Length of Service Awards, recognizing the accomplishments of our staff and we will be a host site for the National Emergency Medical Services Management Association (NEMSMA) Credentialing Tests for Supervisors and Managers.
