Renner Volunteer Fire and Rescue

In April of 1947 a group of citizens from the town of Renner and Mapleton Township held a meeting and it was decided to form a legal fire department that would cover Renner and Mapleton Township. Thrity one men volunteered to become members of the new department, and an election was held to elect a Fire Chief.

The first fire truck purchased was a 1937 Chevrolet, front mount pumper. In 1949 a new Dodge pumper was built for the Renner department by Luverne Fire Apparatus in Luverne Minnesota, and is still in service with the department.

Through the years the department has grown in size. In 1967 a new fire station and Mapleton Township hall was built in Renner on the same site as the former station. This building now houses five fire trucks and the administrative offices for the fire department.

The demand for training has increased greatly since the start of the department. Due to construction and major highways in the coverage area, the fire department is very active in training at both the state and national level in both fire and emergency medical services.
