Dassel Volunteer Fire Department At a moment’s notice, the members of the Dassel Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) are ready to spring into action to help those who need it most. Those interested in becoming a volunteer fi refi ghter should contact the fi re station at (320) 275-3260, or city hall at (320) 275-2454. The Dassel Volunteer Fire Department’s response area is approximately 125 square miles. In 2017, the department responded to more than 300 calls, the most in the history of the department. The Dassel Fire Relief Association hosts two annual events to raise funds for the department. Funds are primarily used for equipment and upgrades. A french toast breakfast takes place annually in May, and a pork chop dinner takes place annually during National Fire Prevention Week in October. The department also sends out calendars to its fi re district, and received $12,500 in donations from calendar sales in 2016. This money goes toward upgrading equipment. The department purchased the Mason building – the old fi re station and city hall – which includes options for expansion and additional parking. Those who wish to donate to the Relief Association can do so by sending a check to the DVFD at PO Box 56, Dassel, MN 55325. The fi re station’s phone number is (320) 275- 3260. In cases of emergency, please dial 911. The fi re station’s e-mail is dasselfi re@dassel.com Dassel Volunteer Fire Department Roster Chief – Dale Grochow Assistant Chief – Mike Enerson Captain 1 – Brian Massingham Captain 2 – Zach Holm Captain 3 – Andy Nelson Lieutenant 1 – Terry Hiedecker Lieutenant 2 – Tom Weseloh Lieutenant 3 – Matt Doughty Chaplain – Keith Carlson Jose Almazan Doug Bollman – (reserve) Kevin Carlin Keith Day Brian Gillman Jason Harris Anita Henningsgaard Caleb Herzog Justin Johnson Mike Kadelbach Renee Massingham Kurt Mortenson Jordan Ostlund Josh Pelant Jeff Putnam Ron Rauschendorfer – (daytime) Scott Steuck Jon Trotter Justin Yager Dassel Fire Department Lieute nant 3 Matt Doughty and area students gave a thumbs-up after learning about fi refi ghters safety suits and equipment. �� � � � ��� �� Offi cial Guide to Dassel-Cokato 2018-19 �� 25
