Hennepin EMS is employing new technology from Stryker Corporation to reduce the risk of injuries to their patients, paramedics and EMTs. The Power-LOAD™ system is a revolutionary method for managing the stretcher during loading and unloading, while increasing security during transport.
On the 5-year anniversary of the 35W bridge collapse, author, survivor, and former journalist Garrett Ebling will be at the HCMC Gift Shop on the street level of its Red Building to sign and promote copies of his new book, Collapsed, from 11 AM to 1 PM on Wednesday, Aug. 1.
“We spent many weeks at HCMC following the collapse and are still so full of gratitude for the EXCELLENT treatment Garrett received, and the kindness given to all of his family and supporters,” says Ebling’s wife, Sonja.
The author will sign his books in HCMC’s Red Building Gift Shop, located inside the entrance at 717 South 7th St. or 730 S. 8th St., just steps away from the emergency department where an ambulance brought Ebling to HCMC for care back in 2007.
Collapsed is Ebling’s personal story of recovery as well as the stories of other survivors of the tragedy. For more information, go to www.35Wbridgecollapse.com.
