The Rescue Squad and the Fire Department are under the umbrella of an association called the Battle Lake Area Fire and Rescue Association (BLAFRA).  This entity is comprised of the City of Battle Lake and four area townships and is run by a board of directors that has representation from each of the entities. 
 

The Battle Lake Rescue Squad is made up of area volunteers who provide a much-used service in our community. Their service area extends well beyond city limits and many hours are spent on training and maintaining their skill levels.  The group consists of approximately 20 individuals trained as First Responder, EMT, Paramedic, or RN and are under the direction of a Medical Doctor.  The services of the Battle Lake Rescue Squad can be accessed with a 911 call.  Squad members provide medical attention and assistance at the scene however they do not transport patients.

The Rescue Squad is currently housed at the Fire Hall in Battle Lake and is funded by the City of Battle Lake and area Townships as well as donations from various organizations and private individuals.  Donations for the Battle Lake Area Rescue Squad may be submitted to PO Box 911,
