Highlights from the Week of July 19, 2021
There's a lot going on in the City Different!
Back-to-School Bags
The Environmental Services Division has collaborated with Santa Fe Public Schools to reduce plastic waste and provide residents with reusable bags by donating 5,000 BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) shopping bags for the schools' summer Chromebook exchange. The program was funded by the "Bag Fee" ordinance, which sets a fee for the use of paper bags in order to reduce plastic litter pollution, conserve resources, and encourage reusable products.
Making Santa Fe Safer
The Fire Department is proud to announce that six of its personnel – Jake Hayman, Keith Armijo, Kevin Fetzer, Joshua Bregman, Nick Penner, and Erik Hickey (not pictured)have recently completed training to become Paramedics, the highest level of EMS licensure in the state. Paramedic School is an intensive process consisting of over 1500 hours of classroom, lab, and clinical content. Bravo to these graduates!
Kids Cool Down Tomorrow
As you can see in the photo, last Saturday's Kids Cool Down was a blast. So here's a reminder that the Parks Division and the Fire Department are going to throw another Kids Cool Down at Franklin Miles Park tomorrow, Saturday, July 24. The waterworks go live at 11:30. Play on the courts and run around the fields, get cooled down, and make a day of it with a picnic lunch. And don’t forget to bring the beach towels.
City Job Fair on July 31
