Last night, our 2018 Citizens Academy got an up-close look at what it's like to be a Midland Police Department officer, including a full tour of our Law Enforcement Center and face time with the Chief and members of our SWAT, Community Relations, and detective teams. Participants also heard from the City Attorney's office and Human Resources about the duties and challenges in those departments. As always, it was a great (late) evening!

Midland Professional Firefighters - Local 1315 added 4 new photos — with Billy Griffin.

Midland Local 1315 spent time this week practicing our ice water rescue skills. Ice water rescue is just one of the many special skills offered by the Midland F...irefighters.

We are often asked if we retrieve pets through the ice; Yes! We would rather go after the pet with our equipment than watch a resident attempt it.

Did you know that Midland is making a major impact on the 2018 Winter Olympic Games? Most of the snow you'll see in the skiing events was made by SMI Snow Makers of Midland! (We also use their equipment to make snow for the sledding hill at City Forest.) Very cool - literally. 🌨️❄️

The company, Snow Makers Inc., says on its website that it manufactured the snow for the Jeongseon Alpine Center, which hosts the alpine speed events of downhill, super-g and downhill combined events for both the men and women.
