With nearly 29 years in the fire service, fire engineer Jim Giblin has a passion for community service and showcasing the history of Roseville Fire. Over the years Jim has worked a number of special projects for the Fire Department including the outreach program Risk Watch and running the Fire Union boot drive to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Jim currently serves on the fire apparatus committee and bike team.
Jim worked for a neighboring fire agency for 16 years. He made the move to Roseville Fire because he “wanted to work for an agency that was on the cutting edge of fire service that also focused on customer service,” said Giblin. He feels the best part about working for Roseville Fire is “making a difference in someone’s life. Not just in an emergency, but when we go to the store and let a family check out the engine, or help the public with minor difficulties. I like to see the smiles that kindness generates. Those small things make this job feel worthwhile.”
Jim is also one of the founding members of the non-profit Roseville Fire museum. When the City’s first fire station was donated back to the City, Jim made it his mission to get the museum up and running. After five years of hard work the museum has made great strides in educating the community about the history of fire service and the Roseville Fire Department.
