Your assistance with teaching aircraft familiarization training, apparatus operations and serving as a Probationary Firefighter Trainer are all testaments to this along with your own self-drive to complete the AAAE Airport Master Firefighter designation. Your performance is a testament to your commitment to our department, our personnel and our entire airport community."

June Rescue - MSP Airport Fire On the Job!

Saturday 4th June - MSP Airport Fire (along with MAC Field Maintenance and MSP Airport Police) assisted in the rescue of a brood of ducklings that slipped into a storm drain near the FedEx facility and could not exit. With a gentle push from Engine 31's bumper line, the ducklings were collected from the storm drain and reunited with their mother who was anxiously waiting nearby. Great job team!

Responding crew: Driver Brent Carlson, Driver Kevin Taaffe, Firefighter Jessica Meuwissen, Probationary Firefighter Abigail Schmidt (pictured in photo).
