Over two dozen volunteers make up the Coon Rapids Fire Department. The fire department covers nearly
100 square miles including Union and Orange townships as well as pieces of Viola, Richland and Newton
Fire fighters attend regular business meetings every month and also at least two hours of
training per month in order to comply with state mandates. Coon Rapids firemen not only fight fires both in
town and outside of town, but they also respond to accidents. They are trained to assist in non/fire
emergency situations that require auto extrication, hazardous materials and swift water rescue, to mention a
few. On top of that, they educate the public and schools about fire prevention and safety.
