Sartell Fire Marshal Butch Rieland recently qualified as a certified emergency manager for the State of Minnesota.
Rieland achieved that honor by completing the rigorous certification requirements for Emergency Management. Rieland’s honor does not mean he will leave his Sartell fire marshal position, but it does enhance his position in making Sartell ever safer.
He will be recognized for his achievement at the annual Association of Minnesota Emergency Management Awards Banquet Sept. 17 at Breezy Point Lodge near Brainerd.
Rieland has served as fire marshal for the City of Sartell for nearly 10 years. He has been a member of the Sartell-LeSauk Fire Department since 1994.
