The Durand City Fire Department and Durand Rural Fire Department are separate fire departments, but staffed by the same great group of volunteers. Volunteer based means their is nobody at the station in the event of a fire, but instead are called from what they may be doing to come and go on the call. The Durand City/Rural Fire Department currently serves the City of Durand and multiple surrounding townships: Lima, Durand, Canton, Maxville, Peru, Eau Galle, Albany, Frankfort, Waterville and Waubeek. The fire department currently has 3 engines in service, 3 tenders, 1 brush truck, 1 ATV, and a rescue boat equipped with sonar.
