THE BEGINNING
It was 1901, 14 years after what is now known as the City of Durand was established, when the Durand Fire Department was first organized. 7 men, under the leadership of Durand's first fire Chief, W.R. Hopkins, were Durand's first firefighters.
One of the original firefighters would later become the Department's third Chief. Today, Richard Rinker serves as Durand's 11th Fire Chief. He's been with the department since 1979.

TODAY
Today there are 16 firefighters under the leadeship of Chief Rinker. They are listed below along with their rank and date of hire. If you see them on the street, give them a high-five and thank them for their service!
