The City of Red Wing has partnered with the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) to designate Red Wing as a Seizure Smart Community. Beginning in May and progressing over the next six months representatives from EFMN will be conducting free awareness training at schools, businesses, for the City staff and any organization that would like training.
Communities in the past that have received a Seizure Smart designation include Rochester, Owatonna, Fairmont, Duluth, Austin and St. Cloud. This a service donated by EFMN and there is no fee for participation.
November is National Epilepsy Month. On October 26 at 9:30 a.m. there will be an Open House at the Minnesota State College Southeast Technical, 308 Pioneer Road, Red Wing, MN, to award the seizure smart certificate to City officials. The public is welcome to attend.
