The Minot Rural Fire Department responds to structure fires, wildland/grass fires, vehicle accidents, hazardous materials incidents and service calls. We are available to check suspicious carbon monoxide levels in the homes and businesses within the district.

Our Fire Prevention and Inspection Department provides annual site inspections for the licensing of home daycare facilities, the retail sale of fireworks and establishments selling alcoholic beverages. Inspections comply with local and state codes and the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code.

The Department's Fire Prevention Officer coordinates annual visits to area schools during Fire Prevention week. During these visits, students are given safety tips and the ability to see what a firefighter would look like during an emergency situation. The Fire Prevention Officer also provides educational safety briefings for the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H Clubs. If you would like a member of our Fire Dept. to visit with your group, please contact us.

The District has established a fee policy for monitoring controlled burns. If you
require fire control assistance for any open burning situation, please contact us.
All non-agricultural burning requires a permit from the First District Health Unit.
Agricultural materials consist of trees, branches, grass, hay, straw, stubble and
other vegetation products. If you have any additional questions give us a call.
