The Hannaford Volunteer Fire Department is an active part of the city functions of Hannaford. There are approximately 15 current members consisting of volunteer citizens from both the town and rural areas. The Fire Department responds to approximately ten fires per year, with an average of two structure fires included.

The Fire Department in Hannaford struggles with funding like most small rural departments, but with the use of grants from various agencies they have been able to upgrade equipment. The department has in operation four modern fire trucks, new fire suits, new breathing systems, and numerous other new equipment additions.

The department’s goal is to move the department forward and keep up with the trends and equipment to fulfill its mission of protecting homes, businesses, and property for the citizens within its fire district, and to offer mutual aid for the surrounding areas.

The Fire Department is directed by fire chief Rick Somsen, and secretary/treasurer is Ed Everson.
