Allina Health Emergency Medical Services

  • Kenyan/Twin Cities connection

    In December, 2016, EMS Operations Manager Jeff Lanenberg participated in the graduation ceremony for Minneapolis Fire Department. Four of the graduates were Kenyan firefighters from Minneapolis sister-city, Eldoret, Kenya.

    Jeff was part of a team of public safety providers who traveled to Kenya to help teach providers in Eldoret a number of tactics and skills. At that time, Allina Health EMS donated an ambulance which is still use. At the recent ceremony, Jeff  turned over the keys to a second donated ambulance for Eldoret.

    The relationship between the Twin Cities and Eldoret was cultivated by Minnesota Judge Lajune Lange (ret), who currently serves as President of the International Leadership Institute in Minneapolis. Judge Lange has been instrumental in making cultural, business, healthcare and safety connections between our two communities. It’s great to see our relationship continue to flourish.
