2022-B Fire Academy

Congratulations to the Fire Academy Class of 2022-B

On July 29th, 2022, the Saint Paul Fire Department added 20 new firefighters to its ranks.  The department has hired 41 firefighters in 2022, 13 of which have been paramedics.   Almost 30% of this class has come through one of our department’s pathways programs; the EMS academy, BLS program, or for some both. 

“A promotional process through our pathways program has been 13 years in the making.  I’m excited about the development of our promotional hiring process and proud of the work our training division has done to bring on and train these needed additions to our staff.”
