Nyle Zikmund introduced new member Jeff Lundquist.  Jeff is the Community Risk Reduction Specialist for the Spring Lake Park Blaine Mounds View (SBM) Fire Department.  Jeff grew up in Edina.  Ever since he could walk he’s been in love with two-wheeled vehicles, progressing from mini-bikes to dirt bikes and, recently, road bikes.  He just completed a 3 day, 1,000 mile motorcycle trip and is getting ready to go to Sturgis.  He’s an active member of the firefighter’s Red Knights Motorcycle Club.  When he is not on his motorcycle, he is often at his family cabin near Breezy Point.  Jeff started out in the warehousing, working on inventory management and logistics but soon found himself working at SBM Fire.  He been there now for 13 years and full time for the last 6 years.  He and his wife, Bridget, have four sons aged 17 to 23.
