    Summer fun

    The last month of summer was a great opportunity for us to connect with our public safety partners and communities by participating in training drills. These drills allow for us to help understand each other’s roles and focus during an emergency and how we can work together to accomplish the goal of caring for the public and keeping them safe. 

    The fall brings some great opportunities with our crews covering the Renaissance Festival and in Minnesota, hockey never stops. 

    We will again be hosting our EMS on Ice HockeyFest on September 20 to help support the Strub Caulkins Center for Suicide Research. It will be a pre-conference event for our annual PulseCheck Summit which will take place on Friday, September 21, at the Mystic Lake Conference Center. Our featured speakers will discuss a variety of topics, ranging from leadership challenges to the future of EMS, specifically the EMS Agenda 2050. Please join us by registering for the PulseCheck Summit.
