The Winger Fire Dept. was formed in May 1915 with twochemical engines of 50 and 60 gallon capacities as its first firefighting equipment.
This was housed in various locations including the basement of the present-day Winger Community Center.
Firefighters dealt with problems of engines freezing in the basement and the ramp from the basement to street level being filled with snow and ice.
These issues were dealt with until 1948 when construction of the fire hall was completed. fire department The first Fireman’s ball was held that year on December 30th.
In 1983 EMS services were added and equipment necessary for emergency services was purchased. The First Responder services are extremely valuable to our community as our Winger Fire and Rescue Volunteers are called upon regularly to offer assistance in motor vehicle accidents, farm and home accidents, and various other medical calls.
The Jaws of Life, defibrillator and much other lifesaving equipment have become as much a part of Winger Fire and Rescue as the firefighting apparatus and the volunteer members take their training and the importance of their services very seriously.
