[WCCO-TV, April 10, 2017] Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar toured
United Hospital's emergency department and an
Allina Health EMS ambulance to see how drug overdose patients are cared for. Klobuchar then announced two bills she has authored to help fight the synthetic opioid drug abuse epidemic.
[KARE 11, March 21, 2017] Violence against paramedics and EMTs on the job are increasing.

In December, 2016, EMS Operations Manager Jeff Lanenberg participated in the graduation ceremony for Minneapolis Fire Department. Four of the graduates were Kenyan firefighters from Minneapolis sister-city, Eldoret, Kenya.
Jeff was part of a team of public safety providers who traveled to Kenya to help teach providers in Eldoret a number of tactics and skills. At that time, Allina Health EMS donated an ambulance which is still use. At the recent ceremony, Jeff turned over the keys to a second
donated ambulance for Eldoret.
The relationship between the Twin Cities and Eldoret was cultivated by Minnesota Judge Lajune Lange (ret), who currently serves as President of the International Leadership Institute in Minneapolis. Judge Lange has been instrumental in making cultural, business, healthcare and safety connections
between our two communities. It’s great to see our relationship continue to flourish.
Now, those new rigs are ready to hit the road around the Twin Cities.
