The Sartell City Council has accepted Deputy Fire Chief Jim Sattler’s resignation from the Sartell Fire Department, effective immediately.
Jim started his career in 1988 and has held every position on the fire department from firefighter to Fire Chief. He spent over six years as the volunteer Fire Chief and over twenty years as a Chief Officer.
Jim was an integral part of the transition from a volunteer Fire Chief to the department’s first full-time Fire Chief. The City of Sartell hired Peter Kedrowski last spring as the full-time Fire Chief and Sattler moved into the Deputy Chief role. The Sartell City Council and City Staff would like to extend a sincere appreciation to Jim for his dedication to the Sartell Fire Department and the safety of our community over the past 33 years.
Chief Kedrowski wanted to express his gratitude to Jim as well, “I am extremely thankful for the hard work that Jim put in as Fire Chief, setting the stage for continued success for the Fire Department and myself. He will be missed.”
