What's New at IAFF S-6
Dean Vargo

Dean Vargo was honored at a private celebration for his 16 years and 9 months of service to MSP Airport Fire on Thursday 14th July 2022.

Dean medically retired on Wednesday 8th December 2021; a bit earlier than anticipated, but is enjoying his next chapter in life. He has recently accepted a job working as a counselor for challenged adults, teaching them life skills.

He is feeling good and really misses working at the Fire Department. We miss him as well and are very happy his health has improved. Dean is planning to attend the Local S-6 retirement celebration this fall.

Fare-thee-well Crash 12

A fan favorite. A good rig. No party, but a farewell hug by Captain Josh Renneke as Crash 12 is off to Mankato for its next chapter of life in the fire service. Godspeed!

Your work on apparatus design and procurement has proven your high level of professionalism towards our internal and external partners and your attention to detail and accuracy. You continue to strive to educate yourself and others. 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."

God Speed, Brother and know your efforts are appreciated!
