Ever since he was a kid growing up in Richfield, Charlie Keis knew he wanted to help people. Eventually, this led him to become a firefighter. However, few people realize it is next to impossible to become a firefighter for the town you grew up in if it is part of the Twin Cities metro. Charlie’s journey post-Richfield took him to Duluth, then Bismark, North Dakota and eventually back to Richfield as the city’s newest firefighter.
For the twenty-fourth episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast we sit down with Charlie to discuss his journey, how appreciative residents are of the services the RFD offers, and what it is like providing high-quality fire and medical aid to his hometown.
