    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.

    Our EMS 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.

    At our retreat, we had learned that the most common answer EMS leaders give when asked how they are doing is "good and busy." We are certainly living up to that!
