Fire Department


Dassel’s Fire Department takes pride in maintaining its equipment and vehicles. 

Updated July 2022

At a moment’s notice, the members of the Dassel Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) are ready to spring into action to help those who need it most.

The Dassel Volunteer Fire Department’s response area is approximately 125 square miles. In 2021, the department responded to 355 calls.

The Dassel Fire Relief Association hosts two annual events to raise funds for the department.

Funds are primarily used for equipment and upgrades. A french toast breakfast takes place annually during EMS Week in May, and a pork chop dinner takes place annually during National Fire Prevention Week in October. The department also sends out calendars to its fire district, and received approximately $20,000 in donations from calendar sales once again in 2021. This money goes toward upgrading equipment.

Those who wish to donate to the Relief Association can do so by sending a check to the DVFD at PO Box 56, Dassel, MN 55325.

The fire station’s phone number is 320-275-3260. In cases of emergency, dial 911. The fire station’s email address is

Those interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter should contact the fire station at 320-275-3260, or city hall at 320-275-2454.
