Parkers Prairie Fire and Rescue

Parkers Prairie Fire Department

The Parkers Prairie Fire Department proudly protects approximately 2400 people. We operate out of 1 station that protects residential and commercial areas. Our department is a public department whose members are on a volunteer status.

We have a long history of proudly protecting the residents in our community. Our station, which was built in 1996, protects the City of Parkers Prairie and 6 surrounding townships.

Each year the volunteers put on the Annual Ring of Fire Bull Ride and Fireman’s Dance located in Industrial Park on East Soo Street. The event is held the first Friday of August and is the kickoff to the Parkers Prairie Fall Festival. This event is held to raise money for continued operating support.
All donations are welcomed at any time to support your local fire department.
