As we find ourselves in the throws of yet another Minnesota winter, Airport Fire/Local S-6 members are once again completing Cold Water Rescue training; and as part of that process, we want to extend a timely reminder for the public we serve...
Please understand the potential dangers of recreational activities on or around frozen bodies of water and how to survive a fall through the ice. Bottom line, get out and enjoy these beautiful winter days, but stay safe and have a plan if the worst does happen.
Local S-6 would like to extend a warm welcome to our two newest hires... Martynas Sidlauskas (left) and Joseph Grady (right), start date Monday 25th January 2021. Both will be joining B-Shift, Station One. Please create an opportunity to introduce yourselves and assist them in getting situated. Welcome aboard, gentlemen!
Local S-6 would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to Jon Kauffmann on his promotion from rank of Firefighter to rank of Driver. Jon joined Airport Fire on Tuesday 22nd March 2011 with his official promotion date to Driver being Saturday 5th December 2020. Unfortunately, due to his ongoing battle against Glioblastoma (brain cancer), Jon retired from Airport Fire effective Monday 14th December 2020. Jon brought an unprecedented level of positivity and energy to his role throughout his 9-year, 9-month tenure. He is and will continue to be deeply missed by his Local S-6 Brothers and Sisters. God Speed, Jon... we've got it from here.
Local S-6 would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to Firefighter Rob Corey on being the 2019 Firefighter of the Year award recipient. Unfortunately, due to the recent COVID-19 restrictions, the annual MAC Public Safety Awards Banquet was not able to happen. Rob was nominated by his peers for his outstanding work throughput the 2019 calendar year and was presented with this honor at the December mandatory training session by Assistant Fire Chief Greg Fuller. God Speed, Brother and know your efforts are appreciated!
