    Summer fun

    Summertime is upon us and we are rising to the challenge! Road construction, special events and our daily work is keeping us busy, but we manage to have some fun in between. We were lucky enough to work again with our public safety partners from the city of Blaine for the Joyful Noise Music Festival.

    New employees

    New employees

    We've welcomed two new employee academies within the last month. They've completed their orientation to Allina Health, the EMS system policies and equipment and have been out on the streets with their Field Training Officers (FTOs). Our FTO group has welcomed six new members who will have current FTOs mentor them with their new employee. They recently completed a Field Training and Evaluation Program (FTEP) with some existing FTOs.
