The Yankton Rural Fire Association is a membership organization that owns and operates fire protection equipment. It is staffed by the City of Yankton Fire Department to serve rural and residential residents outside the city of Yankton, SD. The fire association obtained a loan to construct an addition to the existing city fire station to house its equipment in 2003. In 2006, the Rural Fire District obtained a second loan to assist with construction of a fire station west of Yankton, closer to rural members, and purchase equipment for the firefighters.
