74% increase in loss of life or property fires in Woodbury over just the last 6 years, while fires overall in Minnesota went down over the same time.

In 2015, although we had asked Woodbury Bulletin not to incorrectly attribute our work, the Woodbury Bulletin published a great story about the work of Woodbury Fire with preschoolers, but accidentally incorrectly attributed that good work to the City of Woodbury, who had cut PreK fire prevention in 2012.  As a matter of correction, instead of retraction, the Woodbury Bulletin published a 2015 story about Woodbury Fire, now the Woodbury Heights Fire Department. including Bill Braun and the other retired firefighters volunteering to prevent fire; the Minnesota Legislature wrote MS 424A.001 Subd. 10, the definition of 'volunteer firefighter' to include those volunteers doing fire prevention work as Minnesota firefighters.  The State of Minnesota legally defines a "Fire Department" in MS 424A.001 Subd. 2. as an "independent nonprofit firefighting corporation", which included the Woodbury Heights Fire Department (EdQuest, Inc), as chartered by the Minnesota Secretary of State under Chapter 317A as an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
