This tribute was awesome! Happy Retirement Chief Sivak!

Good luck Bob. You're an awesome guy and I enjoyed all your jokes at work! Enjoy life!!!

I'm going to miss your music trivia. Enjoy the next stage.

For our neighbors in Gladstone: Consider participating in Sunday’s “Operation Drive In” as announced by Governor Burgum this afternoon. This unique pilot program to mass-test for COVID could greatly assist our health officials in implementing drive-thru testing on a larger scale.

You must live in the Gladstone fire district to participate.

Stay well everyone!We're launching a new pilot project, dubbed “Operation Drive-in,” to expand COVID-19 testing and improve contact tracing to slow the spread of the coronavirus in North Dakota.

This is a proof of concept to help us guide and shape further testing on focused populations. It involves setting up drive-through testing sites in two North Dakota communities this weekend, with the goal of testing as many people as possible from those communities – including those showing no symptoms of COVID-19.

By proving the testing concept and identifying carriers earlier, the state can improve its contact tracing and further slow the spread of the virus. Read more about the project: www.governor.nd.gov/news/burgum-announces-pilot-project-expand-covid-19-testing-and-improve-traci...

Great idea!!! Thank you. I’ll just wait until you come to my area, like anyone behaving like AN ADULT would do.

Hey fakebook, where are the comments ? Who do YOU think YOU are to determine the "most relevant" for OUR communities ?

I here the Americans have created a 5-minute test is it that one?

We were hoping for a bigger send-off for our friend next door, Fire Chief Bob Sivak, as he starts retirement starting tomorrow. Since a gathering can't quite happen right now, we felt a video message would do for the time being!

Thank you Chief Sivak for your 42 years of dedication to the citizens of Dickinson. We've appreciated your leadership and partnership with our department, and all you've done for our city. Enjoy your retirement and visit often!

Congratulations to my awesome brother-in-law on the past 42 years of his undying dedication to his service to the city of Dickinson. I believe you will be so missed after you are gone because of all you gave of yourself as fire chief. Remember always what you contributed to the city of Dickinson and now you will be the best at whatever you do with the remaining years of your life.
