Congratulations on Your Retirement Chief Esbensen!

This Friday is EPFD Fire Chief George Esbensen’s last day at the City of Eden Prairie after serving the community since 1986. Chief Esbensen was an on-call firefighter for the EPFD for 16 years before being hired as Fire Chief in 2002.

The Eden Prairie Police and Fire Departments enjoy a close working relationship, sharing responses on 911 calls and partnering on events such as Safety Camp, Night to Unite and Open Houses. Throughout his tenure, Chief Esbensen has worked hard to ensure the safety of Eden Prairie residents through his commitment to maintaining a professional and prepared crew of firefighters.

The EPPD is grateful for the assistance and support Chief Esbensen has provided to the Police Department over the years. We will miss him and wish him all the best in his retirement from the Fire Department.
