    What's New at IAFF Local 21

    The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) has a long history of awarding service bonuses to Minnesota Veterans who served in America’s wars. Starting in 1919 after World War I, through World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, and now the Global War on Terrorism. MDVA recognizes the sacrifices and courage Minnesotans took to defend our country.

    The 2022 Legislature passed and Governor Walz signed the first-ever Veterans Omnibus Bill that included funding for a service bonus payable to eligible Veterans who served from 9/11/01 to 8/30/21. MDVA is honored to facilitate this program for eligible Veterans, currently serving service members, or Veterans' beneficiaries.

    The application period will begin on July 7, 2022. The last day to apply is June 30, 2024, unless the funds have been exhausted prior to June 30, 2024.  Click HERE to visit the website.

    Saint Paul Firefighters IAFF Local 21 is proud to announce that our 21 newest members will be hitting the streets, some reporting for duty as early as 0800 hours tomorrow morning.  Their graduation is some much needed relief to our frontline that are responding to a record-breaking number of calls for service every day.

    No rest for the weary.  This group is eager after 9 weeks of a grueling Fire Academy notorious for high intensity training and peak physical conditioning.  All of which rose to the occasion, tackled the challenges and have earned their rank amongst our Membership.  We are excited to welcome you to the family!  Congratulations and we'll be seeing you on the streets!

    The Recruit Academy graduation ceremony will be held at the Highland Recreation Center (1978 Ford Parkway) at 1pm.  For those that are unable to attend in person, the event will be live streamed on the City of Saint Paul's YouTube channel.  Click HERE to be redirected.
