Blue Earth Fire Department

Blue Earth Fire Department Members

The Blue Earth Fire Department was founded in 1891. We are a volunteer/paid on call fire department, which provides fire suppression and rescue services to the community of Blue Earth, Minnesota (pop. 3353) and the surrounding townships of Blue Earth, Jo Daviess, Pilot Grove, Prescott, and Verona. We also provide mutual aid to surrounding communities as needed.

Blue Earth is located at the junction of Interstate 90 and U.S. Hwy. 169, in south central Minnesota. Our primary protection area consists of approximately 120 square miles, with an average of 100 calls per year. We also provide Automatic Mutual Aid for one of our neighboring communities for day time calls, covering an additional area of approximately 105 square miles.

Our department consists of up to 30 members who proudly serve and protect our area.

Blue Earth Fire Station

Our fire station which was built in 2006, is located at 120 S Walnut Street, in Blue Earth Minnesota.

The Firefighter's Prayer

When I'm called to duty god

wherever flames may rage

give me strength to save a life

whatever be its age

Help me to embrace a little child

before it is too late

or save an older person from

the horror of that fate

Enable me to be alert

to hear the weakest shout

and quickly and efficiently

to put the fire out

I want to fill my calling and

to give the best in me

to guard my neighbor and

protect his property

And if according to your will

I have to lose my life

bless with your protecting hand

my children and my wife
