Wayzata's Volunteer Fire Department is an old organization. It dates back to its founding in 1912 when it became a member of the Minnesota Fire Department's Association.
The Wayzata Fire Department was reorganized in 1922 as a private corporation. The City of Wayzata took the Fire Department in as a Department of the City in 1963. Names such as W.H. (Fuzz) Swaggert, W.T. Berry, Earl W. Day, and many others helped build our department, its constitution, and by-laws.
