The year is off to a fast start at Roseville Fire. Firefighters have been busy responding to the emergency demand of the community, training, and participating in community events and outreach. An active first month of call volume, coupled with multiple building fires has put us ahead of last year’s call volume pace.
In January we had the opportunity to host an all-department meeting to perform training, review 2022 accomplishments, and to discuss goals and aspirations for 2023.
A few of Roseville Fire’s Goals for 2023:
- Maintaining a Top Tier Response and Emergency Service
- Commitment to high level response, training, and equipment.
- Implementation of benchmarks and professional standards.
- Expand Our Advanced Life Support (ALS) First Response Program
- Additional medications, procedures, and assess hybrid and collaborative service models with partners.
- Continue a High Level and Commitment to Community Outreach and Support
- Programs and events at both the fire station and out in the community; looking to increase.
- Evolve Our Wellness Initiatives
- Further utilizing our embedded mental health professional.
- Assessing any enhancements to annual medical examinations.
In January we also hosted Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan as they unveiled an important phase of their budget proposal. A significant focus of the Governor’s proposed budget will be on public safety, firefighter training, and financial support for each municipal police and fire department in the state. We were honored to host this group and show off our organization and City to the best of our ability.
