These calls ranged in severity from false alarms and dumpster fires to residential and commercial  working structure fires and even structural collapse. The Bozeman Fire Department fully staffs 2 fire engines and 1 tower truck along with a Battalion Chief 24/7/365

The department relies on off-duty personnel to staff a reserve engine when on-duty resources are committed to emergency calls for an extended period or large incidents where additional staffing is required.  We also participate in a progressive county-wide mutual aid program that brings important firefighting resources into the city when needed and sends city resources to county/rural emergency scenes when requested by the responsible fire agency.

As the demand for service continues to increase, so does our level of dedication and commitment to making Bozeman a safe community.  We are always ready and proud to serve!
