Father-daughter EMS duo makes saving lives a family business

[KMSP Fox 9, Feb. 20, 2019] For a father-daughter duo in the north Twin Cities metro area, helping others and saving lives is something of a family business.

The remarkable pair, Bill Griep and Alycia Simons, are members of Allina’s Emergency Medical Service based in Cambridge. They have more than 50 combined years of experience responding to calls from car accidents to gunshot victims.

The unique duo of first responders no longer lives under one roof, but depending on how the schedule falls, sometimes they find themselves paired together in the same ambulance.
