Thanks to the family of former West St. Paul Firefighter Charlie Hermann, the South Metro Fire Department will have a better chance of saving lives from both fire and water.
Hermann, now deceased, served on the West St. Paul Fire Department from May 1953 to April 1977, but his legacy in the department will be remembered well into the future thanks to his $25,000 bequeathment.
According to Don Axtman, son of Charlie’s wife, Kay, Charlie was adamant the $25,000 donation should benefit the firefighters who comprise the department. In keeping with his wishes, department administrators decided to divide the donation into ten scholarships of $2,500 that firefighters can apply for on a yearly basis.
