Detroit Lakes volunteer firefighters commit themselves to serving the community
Being a Detroit Lakes volunteer firefighter requires guts, determination, willingness to help others, admiration of adrenaline rushes and a huge commitment.
According to Detroit Lakes Fire Chief Jeff Swanson, the Detroit Lakes Fire Department runs about 200 calls a year.
"We've been as high as 300," he said. "So that's getting where you're going on a call almost every other day."
