Arnegard Puts New Fire Hall Into Service


The new fire hall located in Arnegard, ND.

The Arnegard Fire Department recently put their new fire hall into service. The previous fire hall was located behind the city hall for the past 30 years. Over the past six years call volume in the area increased by 1200%. This signaled the need for an expanded facility to handle the needs of the quickly growing community and oilfield activity. The new $1.5 million facility was paid for in large part by private donations. The project took two years to complete and gives the department the ability to grow in the future.

Arnegard's original firehall from the early 1900s, the Don Erikson Fire Station, is currently on display at Heritage Park in Watford City, ND.

The all-volunteer Arnegard Fire Department consists of 15 core members that cover an area of 212 square miles. That's four times larger than the city of Fargo. They are trained fire, rescue, medical first responders and are Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) certified. They can handle any situation that first responders deal with in some of the largest cities in the country.
