The Saint Paul Fire Department has joined the Pink Patch Project to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October!
We have designed a Class D uniform shirt and a baseball hat that have been approved to be worn on-duty during the month of October. Additionally, we have two "Friends & Family" shirts for sale to the community to help show support and raise money (in kids and adult sizes!) All of these items will be available for order through Streamline Design (links below) from August 10 - September 4, 2020. The uniform shirts and hats will then be distributed the last week of September so members can start wearing them throughout "Pinktober" and the Friends & Family shirts will be shipped to their homes.
All of the funds raised through the sale of these items will be donated to the American Cancer Society, for their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign.
The Friends & Family gear will also show that you are part of the SPFD Team for the Making Strides Virtual Walk on October 24, 2020 in the Twin Cities!
Please help to show your support as SPFD fights to Extinguish Cancer! Any questions or requests for additional information should be directed to Megan Roesler, Engine 9 (B.)

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!
