As I retire from this fulfilling career, some words of wisdom for you: Remember that most fires are caused by human behavior. Please make fire safety a top priority in your home or business. Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms need to be tested by you each month to make sure they are protecting you. In addition, please consider fire sprinklers in the next home you build or remodel.
marshal recalls career
in my dreams and I am forever grateful to the city of Edina for taking a chance on me when I didn't have a lot of Nike Kyrie Three experience in fire prevention.
I have been involved in many different aspects of the fire service in the past 31 years. My first 17 years were about responding to the station when they needed the volunteers to support the full time firefighters for a big fire. My last 14 years have been about preventing fires.
I have also had a hand in community development and redevelopment the other best part of my job. I have seen old buildings torn down for new ones that revitalize the community and many other remodeled buildings for new or existing businesses. I was honored to be part of Edina Public School's 2004 referendum to improve fire safety in our public schools. Now I can proudly say all of our public and private schools are protected with fire sprinklers.
My first two fires as a fire investigator were fatal fires. I stayed on scene after the crews went home and saw the sadness on the faces of the families who had lost loved ones or all of their possessions.

In late 1980, my mother handed me an article from the Edina Sun Current about the Edina Fire Department looking for volunteer firefighters. I thought, "Could this be my opportunity to become an Edina firefighter and maybe a paramedic someday?" As a teenager, I thought that sounded like an awesome job as I watched the TV show "Emergency."
As fire marshal, I was expected to be the public educator on fire and life safety and would need to overcome my fear of public speaking. My fear was eventually overcome by my passion and desire to prevent these fires. This has been the best part of my job speaking to schools, neighborhood associations, parenting classes at the Edina Community Center, babysitter certification classes and businesses. I also had the opportunity to write in the Edina Sun Current, About Town, the Fire Department's newsletter, EFD Pulse, and other publications.
