The Forest Lake Fire Department Relief Association was created to provide
ancillary benefits to volunteer firemen that are similar to benefits often paid by
municipal fire departments. Such benefits may include disability and accident
insurance, life insurance, and pensions. In addition, this organization often
purchasees fire equipment and supplies for the volunteer fire department.
The present Forest Lake Fire Department Relief Association Board of Trustees includes: John Wurm, President; Dale Zeirnert, Vice President; Joe Houle, Treasurer; Bill Werner, Secretary; Bill Hollenkamp, Trustee; and Dan Groh, Trustee. Ex-Officio members include: Fire Chief Alan Newman; Mayor Stev Stegner; and, City Administrator, Aaron Parrish.
