The Brownsdale Volunteer Fire Department is located in southern Minnesota in the City of Brownsdale. Our service area has a population of nearly 1600 people. The Brownsdale Volunteer Fire Department has a volunteer Chief, Assistant Chief, Lieutenant, Capitan, and 18 volunteer firefighters to serve the service area's residents in the event of an emergency.

The Brownsdale Volunteer Fire Department is a volunteer organization founded in 1948 and contracted to provide life and property protection from natural and accidental disasters within the City of Brownsdale, Red Rock, and part of Waltham Townships in conjunction with the Brownsdale Firemen's Relief Association. Our department is one of only 30 in the state of Minnesota to be independent of the City or Townships relying only on it’s contracts for service, fund raising and donations from it’s citizens for it’s day to day operation.

We respond to an average of 100 emergency calls a year which consist of: emergency medical; fire suppression; and automobile accidents. The Department has a county wide mutual aid agreement in addition to the Zumbro Valley Mutual Aid Assn.
