Bloomington’s public safety departments took to the ice March 10 for a friendly faceoff in their second annual Fire versus Police hockey game at the Bloomington Ice Garden. Donations were encouraged for the Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People’s (VEAP) food pantry and for Burnsville Fallen Heroes: Officer Paul Elmstrand, Officer Matthew Ruge and Fire Fighter/Paramedic Adam Finseth. Police took home the victory with a final score of 3-2.

Community support for the event was huge. Nearly 1,000 people attended, and Reserve Officers collected 1,079 pounds of food, assorted items and a $50 check donation for VEAP.

Donations were also accepted for, a site coordinated by Law Enforcement Labor Services. Those contributions will go to the families of the Burnsville Fallen Heroes. The fundraising efforts of Bloomington Fire and Police have raised a total of $19,534.

Stay tuned for the next time Police and Fire meet on the ice, March 9, 2025.
