About Our Department

The Bruderheim Fire Department was formed in 1915 and, nearly a century later, we are still serving the Town of Bruderheim and the County of Lamont as a part time fire department. Along with responding to various types of emergency situations, we also maintain strong ties to the community by participating in a number of community events including pancake breakfasts, What’s Up in Bruderheim, Fire Prevention Week activities and Town wide Clean Up.
