Fire Department

The Thief River Falls Fire Department was organized in 1894 for the purpose of fire extinguishments. Today, along with fire control, the Department responds to rescue, extraction and hazardous materials incidents, provides training in extinguishments to industry and private parties, and enforces the fire code. Anytime the chance of loss of life or property are threatened, the Fire Department is ready to respond immediately.
