    Joyful Noise event

    EMS supports events all year long.

    Summer events are underway in the Allina Health EMS service area.

    Pictured above is our bike team, who helped to provide coverage to the Joyful Noise music festival in Blaine.

    Attendance was estimated to be around 18,000 for the two day festival and temperatures in the upper 90s kept our EMS team busy.

    We were able to partner with Blaine Police Department and Spring Lake Park-Blaine-Mounds View (SBM) Fire Departments to keep attendees safe and make the event enjoyable for all—including a cooling water spray from the SBM firetruck!
