The Town of Draper is protected by a Volunteer Fire Department with members ranging in age and experience who serve the community by undergoing training and being on call at all times should an emergency arise.

We have a great modern engine (pumper) and an old-school tender (water tanker) that is up and running, as well as a box truck that is being set up as a staging center for large fire scenes (ie National & State Forests). We are currently looking for a used heavy duty 4WD pickup truck to be used for brush fires/forest fires. We work with the USFS, DNR and other municipal departments in Sawyer County under a Mutual Aid Agreement- this helps spread resources around the county, where rural volunteers are hard to come by.

If you have a lead on equipment or a brush truck, or would like to make a donation of any kind, be sure and let us know!

We appreciate your support and encouragement. Consider joining the team, or stop by the Fire Hall on the 1st or 3rd Tuesday at 7pm during our meetings to see what we are working on- all are welcome to participate!

We have a large tent available for public use - contact the Fire Hall to reserve it for your next outdoor function!

For questions please contact Fire Chief Paul Zmuda at (715) 266-2059
