Another RIP Post…

Just days after the Minnesota EMS Community laid EMT Marina Challeen to rest, we have more cause for mourning.  Allina ED Nurse and former Allina Paramedic Chris Kaldenberg died today.  Details are not yet fully known.  He was well known and loved by many.  Keep his family and our EMS Community in your hearts tonight.

Rest in peace Marina Challeen

The Membership of IAEP Local 167 has been deeply saddened by the sudden loss of HealthEast EMT and fellow IAEP Member Marina Challeen.  We are fortunate that EMS line of duty deaths are rare in Minnesota.  This incident serves as a sobering reminder of the potential dangers we all face and the sacrifices some have made.  We must process what happened, honor those injured and lost and move forward.  Your Local Executive Board has arranged for a monetary donation to EMT Challeen’s Memorial Fund.  As many are aware, funeral services have been planned this week.  Please check your Allina email or contact your Manager if you have questions about arrangements.  Stay safe and hold your loved ones close!
