Allina Health Emergency Medical Services

  • EMS Week 2018 photos

    The summer season has started for Allina Health EMS.  We celebrated EMS Week 2018 with the national theme of "Stronger Together." We were honored to receive EMS Week proclamations from various communities within our service areas and our management staff was able to serve our crews with various meals and events at our bases. We were lucky enough to have some of our public safety partners join us!

    Memorial Day Weekend brought some extreme temperatures that we haven't seen for some time but our crews were able to meet the challenge. On Memorial Day, our bike team and a dedicated crew stood by for the crowds and speakers that honored those who died in service to our country at the annual Fort Snelling National Cemetery Remembrance Service. 

    This is the first of our bike team events. We provide support for concert events, running and fitness events and community festivals within our communities throughout the summer and into fall. Say hello if you see us ride by!
