The Luverne Fire Department is a volunteer organization consisting of thirty-seven volunteers. The equipment system consists of one ladder truck, two tanker trucks, one rescue squad, two city engines, one rural engine, and one grass rig. Also, the fire department has one trailer, one quick response vehicle, one air supply truck, and a 12 foot aluminum boat. The Luverne Fire Department offers the only hazardous-materials services in Rock County.
The Fire Hall was expanded in 2007. The building was 40 years old and more room was needed. Parking was added for 8 more trucks, so all the equipment no longer had to be kept in different places throughout the city due to lack of space.
The City of Luverne contracts with Rock County for law enforcement services.
In 2006-2007 Rock County built a new Law Enforcement Center, due to the need of a bigger and more updated facility. The 911 emergency systems have been in operation in Rock County since 1986, but were later enhanced in June of 1989. Also, in 2005 new maps were made. This new system has been extremely effective in supporting response time to emergency calls. In an emergency, dialing "911" will automatically route your call to the Police and Fire Dispatch Center that serves the area from which you are calling. The telephone number and address of the location from which you are calling is automatically displayed on a screen in the Dispatch Center. This helps the dispatcher provide a quicker response to your call.
The 911 emergency systems can include more than the actual rescue. It is possible to create a file on yourself and/or your family for use during an emergency. Included in this file are: number of occupants in the home, number and location of bedrooms, who to contact in case of emergency, and existing medical problems. The file may include anything that you think may be helpful in a time of emergency. It is strongly suggested that new residents make a file for themselves or their families.
The 911 emergency systems are for emergency use only!
