Since organized in 1884, the Bozeman Fire Department has evolved from an organization focused only on fire fighting. As the needs of our valley have changed, so have our services to include response to medical emergencies, rescues, and hazardous materials response both locally and regionally.
We also offer other critical services to our community such as; fire code enforcement, building inspections, and public education with a focus on protecting life and property of Bozeman residents and visitors.
Bozeman Fire is a 100% career department serving the city limits with 24/7/365 coverage from 3 firehouses strategically located around Bozeman.
CALL 9-1-1 FOR ALL FIRE/MEDICAL RELATED EMERGENCIES

After a discussion on how fire sprinklers work, Bozeman fire demonstrated this with their new NFSA sprinkler trailer to city and Montana State University safety officials along with many other attendees.
This trailer has two containers one with sprinklers and the other side without. The two units have identical layout and furnishings.
The left side from time of smoke detector activation to extinguishment 19.1 seconds.
The right side from time of smoke detector activation to flashover conditions (room on fire) 4mins 45 seconds.
Fast water saves lives and property.
Great reminder as well to not delay the call to 911 get those needed coming as soon as you can, we can always turn around if no problems found.
On average from the time of firefighters being paged out to arrival on scene can be around 6 mins.
However we we need to add time in realizing there’s a fire and calling 911, the actual call processing time and once on scene deploying hoses and prepping for fire attack all on top of that 6 min response time.
For more information on this program and how fire departments operate please feel free to contact Chief Josh Waldo at Bozeman Fire headquarters station 1

"In the basement, Johnson opened the door to his windowless office in what once was a conference room. Short, gray dividing walls separate his desk from his bed. ...On the main floor, the break room doubles as the mailroom, file storage and space for IT. Upstairs, four twin beds make the firefighters’ quarters. The only separation of space is the wall beds are pulled against. When a call goes out, the engineer that day gets a 4-inch margin of error before hitting the garage door or pulling a hose from the ceiling.
... That long list can make it hard to understand why Fire Station No. 1 hasn’t been part of the city’s plans before. Waldo said it comes down to timing."
