After 25 years, fire chief will step down
Scott Aker grew up in fire stations in St. Paul. Beyond the little-boy dreams of being a firefighter, he knew from an early age it was something he wanted to do.
When he moved to Rosemount in 1979, he looked into joining the volunteer department but it wasn't until 1982 that he finally got on.
Looking back on the last 31 years, he wouldn't change a thing.
"I've enjoyed 99 percent of my days," said Aker.
