Wright County’s first Emergency Management Director is retiring on Friday, October 12th. Steve Berg served Wright County as Emergency Management Consultant from 2003 to 2005 and was hired full-time with the Sheriff’s Office in 2006.
Steve liked meeting and working with new people. “The support I received from the Sheriff’s Office, County Departments, and all the first response agencies across the County and State was a big encouragement,” he said. Steve also enjoyed being a member of the Wright County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team. He received the Individual Employee Achievement Award in 2017.
In addition to his work as Emergency Management Director, Steve has worked part-time for Allina Medical Transportation, ALS Ambulance, for the past 13 years. All together Steve has over 40 years of public safety service. Steve plans to continue working for Allina after retiring from the County, as well as catch up on home projects, travel, and getting in some warm water diving.
Steve is proud and grateful for the opportunities he had at Wright County. “It has been a privilege to serve under Sheriff’s Miller and Hagerty,” Steve said. “I have great respect for this office and the people that I have worked with during the past 14 years.”
Thank you, Steve, for your exemplary service. Happy Retirement!
