We Minnesotans love our winters from ice fishing to skiing and everything in between. Unfortunately, every year Hennepin County Medical Center sees injuries from time spent outdoors that could have been prevented by taking simple safety measures. Use this site to brush up on your knowledge. By remembering the basics and following some common sense, we can stay safe in the outdoors.

Hennepin County Medical Center is Minnesota’s premier Level 1 Adult Trauma Center and Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center with many nationally recognized programs and specialties. We offer a comprehensive system of primary care clinics and retail clinics located in the Twin Cities. HCMC is also an essential education resource for doctors and other healthcare specialists who go on to practice throughout the state of Minnesota. To learn more visit:
