Celebrating Women's History Month!

March is Women’s History Month, honoring women’s contributions to American history. The first female firefighters on the Saint Paul Fire Department were hired in May of 1992; Fawn Hawkinson, Sue Jacobson, Sheryl LaPean, Ann Majerus, Becky Nelson, Marie O’keefe, Patti Pierre and Kris Weber. These eight women paved the way and inspired many other women to pursue careers in public service.

Academy Class 2022-C

On December 28th, 2022, the Saint Paul Fire Department added eight new firefighters to its ranks.  This is the fourth class to graduate in 2022, bringing the total number of new firefighters trained by our training division to 65!  These new firefighters are all previous city of Saint Paul employees who were hired through an internal city process.  

“As a previous City of Saint Paul Parks & Recreation employee, I learned a lot about our city and community by working in an other department.    I’m excited about the development of our internal hiring process and proud of the work our training division has done to bring on and train these needed additions o our staff.”
