Fargo, North Dakota – Keeping people safe is the main objective of a new piece of technology at the Sanford Health Emergency Room in Fargo.

According to Sanford Health, a weapons detection system has been installed at the entrance to the emergency room at the Sanford Medical Center, which is located at 5225 South 23rd Avenue in Fargo.
