Fire Dept Main   Honor Roll   Apparatus   Fire Prevention  

    The Durand Fire Department is entrusted with protecting the lives and property of the citizens of this city. It is a huge responsibility that we all take very seriously. When a new firefighter joins the department, they begin with 160 hours of intense instruction. That is followed up with at least 32 hours of additional in-house training every year. In addition to fighting fires, the Durand Fire Department also conducts fire safety training at the schools at least once a year. We also spend most of our fire department time maintaining the fire hall and all the equipment that we depend on to do our job.
