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.
Our fire engines respond to calls for the City of Idaho Falls and the Bonneville County Fire Protection District 1, serving a population of approximately 117,000 residents, occupying approximately 1,901 sq. miles.
Our ambulances respond to an even larger area, including the City of Idaho Falls, Bonneville County and portions of Jefferson and Bingham County, serving a population of approximately 155,000 residents, occupying approximately 3,500 sq. miles.
The department is one of the few in the state to have an Insurance Service Organization (ISO) rating of 2. Only 2.4 percent of the more than 48,000 fire departments nationwide have an ISO rating of 2. What does that mean for residents?
Simply put, the better the department, the better the fire insurance rating for our citizens!
