On June 14th, Morris was named the 2014 fire department of the year for the state of Minnesota by The Minnesota State Fire Department Association. Thank you to all the citizens of Stevens County for your support, we are extremely proud to be serving you.
Congratulations to Travis Campbell, Mark Nemmers, and Adam Schmidgall for becoming the newest members of the Morris Fire Department!
The Morris Fire Department is an all volunteer/paid on call fire department consisting of 30 members. We proudly protect approximately 10,000 citizens living in the Stevens/Swift Counties Fire Rescue districts. We also provide mutual aid to our surrounding fire departments - Donnelly, Hancock, Cyrus, and Chokio. We meet on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Monday nights of the every month for required training hours and regular business meetings.
The Morris Fire Department operates with funds that are budgeted by the City of Morris. New members are required to complete approximately 150 hours of training before being placed on active duty. The department averages approximately 2000 man-hours of training annually.
Fire department personnel visit the local schools each year teaching fire safety and distributing fire safety training materials to the students. These functions have proven to be valuable at reducing fire accidents, injuries and fatalities within the fire district.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the department is invited to stop by MORRIS CITY HALL and speak with the chief and pick up an application.
