MSP Airport Fire Local S-6 members, both retired and active, participated in a couple of local charity golf tournaments recently. On July 15th, Brooklyn Park Fire Local 5031 hosted their 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament benefiting various local charities. The event took place at Majestic Oaks Golf Course in Ham Lake, Minnesota.
MSP Airport Fire Local S-6 members, both retired and active, once again participated in this year's MDA Muscle Camp in Maple Lake, Minnesota. Local S-6 members joined firefighters from other departments such as Minneapolis, St. Paul, Edina, Roseville, St. Louis Park, St. Cloud, and St. Anthony to spend the day with MDA campers.
Here is a free scheduling app for your smartphone that was designed for a firefighters shift schedule. I stumbled across this and was surprised to find that our department schedule was already loaded. Once you download the app and begin to go through the setup, you will find us listed in the participating departments as "MAC Airport FD".
Please note that there is AFD Honor Guard training this Tuesday 26th February 2019 - Fire Station One - 0900 to Noon. A-Shift will be on duty. If you are not currently a member of the AFD HG but are interested in joining, please stop in for further information. Thank you.
