The City of Sartell is excited to announce Peter Kedrowski as the new Sartell Fire Chief. The City Council approved Peter’s hiring tonight after an interview process that included City leadership as well as the full Sartell Fire Department.
“Peter’s exceptional leadership qualities and passion for the job make him a great fit as Sartell’s first ever full-time Fire Chief. We’re lucky to have him on our team and can’t wait to see where he takes this department and how he serves the community in the years to come,” says Anna Gruber, Sartell’s City Administrator.
Peter comes with decades of experience serving on local Fire Departments. Since he was 18, Peter served as a volunteer firefighter in Rice. He then tested and was hired as a full-time firefighter for the St. Cloud Fire Department before earning his rank as Captain 6 years ago.
“I’m honored to serve in this exciting opportunity in a growing city like Sartell,” Peter says. “The City leadership knows this is a changing environment and understands the needs for this department to evolve. We’re respecting the 100 year history of the department while moving forward.”
Peter will be working with Sartell’s 29 volunteer firefighters and the Sartell Police Department to serve our community in safety and protection.
Sartell’s current part-time Fire Chief, Jim Sattler, is looking forward to working with Peter to provide a smooth, effective transition for everyone.
