EMS Filming on Stroke Signs & Symptoms

EMT Jenny Hoppe from Tri-County EMS out of Wadena is filmed in the stroke PSA.

On Monday, March 19, several rural EMS systems came together to film a statewide public service announcement on stroke signs and symptoms and calling 9-1-1. Filmed in St. Cloud, EMS were represented from Scott County, Wadena, Leech Lake and Pine County along with a young stroke survivor from St. Cloud. The PSA, produced by AHA and the Minnesota Department of Health, will air on TV stations across the state of Minnesota starting in May for American Stroke Month.
