From the desert, to ice-packed rivers to back-country terrain, our highly trained individuals tackle the worst of circumstances to protect the lives and property of our community and region.
The Idaho Falls Fire Department provides life-saving services ensuring the safety and security of our community.
In 2017, the all-hazard emergency response teams responded to more than 11,000 calls while serving a population of approximately 108,000 residents occupying approximately 350 sq. miles. Our fire response area includes the city of Idaho Falls as well as the Bonneville County Fire Protection District. Our EMS response area also includes Jefferson County and Bingham County.
The department is one of the few in the state to have an Insurance Service Organization (ISO) rating of two. Only 2.4 percent of the more than 48,000 fire departments nationwide have an ISO rating of two. Simply put, the better the department, the better the fire insurance rating for our citizens.
