When the fire department is faced with a significant emergency it has proven to be beneficial to lean on our neighboring fire departments for support. For years we have worked to improve the training and response relationships with our neighboring fire departments. Due to this building of inter-department relations, we have built very strong response agreements within the fire departments of Ramsey County. In April, we responded to multiple fires in communities around Roseville in an effort to support their incident and provide our resource. Being able to respond to other communities just as promptly as our own is an asset for everyone. And in instances of building fires or other significant emergencies in our community, they do the same for us. This shared services model has continued to evolve and show great ability to support those that need it when seconds matter; our citizens and businesses! In this month’s report we have a brief recap of those fires, as well as other events and incidents at Roseville Fire over the past month.
An important reminder for fire pits and recreational fires in Roseville as we are now in spring and as we approach the summer months. Please see our website for specific code information. But a few important reminders:
