FHS students with Allina Paramedic.

Students enrolled in Fridley High School’s Emergency Medical Responder and Emergency Medical Technician courses learned first hand about EMS equipment and procedures from an Allina Paramedic on March 12. Students learned about the meticulous organization of equipment inside the ambulance that allows paramedics to easily access what they need to help patients with any emergency. A tour of the exterior of the ambulance was also given.

Gov. Walz and Lt. Gov Flanagan Service Breakfast to Fridley Middle School students.

On Friday, March 8, Fridley Middle School students made their way to the cafeteria thinking they were picking up a grab-and-go breakfast like it was any other morning. Instead, Governor Tim Walz, Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, Education Commissioner Willie Jett and USDA Food and Nutrition Service Administrator Cindy Long were there to serve scratch-made muffins, pancakes, fruit cups and apple slices.
