For more than 100 years the Silver Lake Fire Department has proudly provided Fire and Rescue protection to the residents of the City of Silver Lake, Hale Township, and portions of Rich Valley, Winsted, & Hassen Valley Townships.  With the strong support of the City and Townships the department maintains two pumper trucks, two tanker trucks, a rescue van equipped with "Jaws of Life", and a gamma goat (6-wheel grass rig) for fire and rescue activities.  The department also maintains a vintage 1932 pumper truck which is proudly shown in parades around the state.

SLFD Firefighters are required to attend the Basic Fire Fighter Course through South Central Technical College during their probationary first year on the department.  In addition to their initial training, the Firefighters attend drills twice a month, and the department holds monthly meetings.

Areas the Firefighters drill include:

  • Ice & Water Rescue procedures

  • Search & Rescue

  • Natural Gas Training

  • City & Rural Pumping

  • CPR, First Aid & First Responder

  • Natural Gas Detection

  • Vehicle Extrication (w/ Silver Lake Ambulance)

  • Live Burns

 

In addition to drills and training, the department is also active in schools and  the  community providing fire prevention training.
