Fire Deaths: What a Difference a Year Makes

A burned out trailer house after a fatal fire in Alexandria caused by careless smoking.

Maybe you started plugging the space heater into the wall rather than that power strip in the basement. Perhaps you’re now keeping a coffee can full of wet sand outside for your smoke breaks, rather than tossing your cigarettes in the garden. Or you took the kids to the store to buy a whole bunch of flameless candles and got rid of all your real ones.

Small changes like these could be contributing factors to the 47 percent drop in fire deaths in 2018.

Read our blog to find out how we can keep that downward trend going.

​Time for a Career Change? Consider the State Patrol.

"I need to get out of here."

If you’ve said that to yourself while looking around your workplace, it may be time for a change.

You could be patrolling our state roads and keeping Minnesotans safe. If that sounds good, consider applying for the Minnesota State Patrol’s Law Enforcement Training Opportunity (LETO) Program. The state patrol is seeking college educated women and men. No law enforcement experience required.

Ready to apply? Applications are being accepted until Feb. 15.
