Local 21 Brothers and Sisters,
Yesterday the MDA kicked off their 2020 Virtual Fill the Boot Fundraiser. On Monday, August 17th, through Friday, August 21st, we will conduct our own virtual drive. IAFF Local 21 will utilize our various platforms to get the word out, but it will be up to our members who can truly make this a success. The Local 21 website will have links to posts that can be shared by our members through their social media networks. I hope everyone can find a way to contribute that works for them.
Please take a moment to check out the Local 21 donation page where we are directing donors who wish to support kids and adults battling muscle disease.
Thank you all in advance for your support and hard work. If you have any questions, please contact me at your convenience.

It is with deep regret that Saint Paul Fire Captain, Tom Bever, shares with us the passing of his mother Karen Joanne Bever. Karen passed away peacefully yesterday after a long battle with cancer. One of her last requests was selfless, asking for any and all donations to go towards the non-profit Shield616. This company recognizes the need for protection to all members of Public Safety, including Police, Firefighters and EMS Providers. Shield616 works to outfit service men and women with tactical body armor.
Below is a link to learn more about Shield616 and you may follow the prompts to donate. Please note that the Saint Paul Fire Department is an option to mark your donation.
Our sincere condolences to the Bever family and thank you for sharing.
Thank you to all Saint Paul Fire Department members, Local 21 and Fire Fighters United for making the Raising Rondo community event a huge success on Saturday. A lot of effort was spent on organizing, promoting and coordinating so that we were able to assist many families and individuals with their essential needs. Excellent work, SPFD!
Come say farewell to an important part of SPFD's history!
On Thursday, July 9th, 2020, at 11:00am, Saint Paul Fire Station No. 10 is being turned over to it's new owner in an informal ceremony between the Saint Paul Fire Department and the property development company.
All active Fire Department personnel and Retirees are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please bring memories and stories of Old Station 10 to share! See below for a brief history and story by the Pioneer Press done in 2010 when Station 10 was retired.
Engine House 10 History
Derby Headquarters will be at the dock area of The Veteran’s Rest Camp on the southwest side of the lake. There is a launch there that we'll plan to use but it is shallow. If you have a bigger boat we recommend the public launch on the north end of the lake off Mayberry Trail, or the County Park just south of the Veteran's Rest Camp.
Check-in is at 8:00am and fishing starts at 9:00am. Return to the docks for weigh-in is at 2:00pm. Lunch (provided) will be at 2:30pm at the Veteran's Rest Camp pavilion. Please BYOB.
This tournament is for the fun and fellowship of Police, Fire and EMS workers. You may fish as hard as you like, or if you just want to soak a bobber and hang out with the kids and/or friends, all are welcome!
At least one person on each team must be an active or retired Police, Fire or EMS, full time OR volunteer.
Local 21 is proud to recognize the diversity in our union and celebrates our LGBTQ members. We encourage everyone to continue to raise awareness and take positive steps towards an inclusive culture.
