Since 1937, Billings Fire Fighters have been protecting the citizens in the Yellowstone Valley from Fires, Medical Emergencies and other unforeseen Hazards. Additionally we represent over 100 uniformed firefighters that work for the City of Billings.

As Billings Fire Fighters, we serve our citizens based on our core values. Honesty, integrity, compassion. These are our guiding principals. We face daily emergencies that require us to be quick problem solvers to make your worse day, a little bit better.

Just another typical day” does not fit in our narrative. Everyday brings new challenges and new encounters. We train everyday to prepare for when the“What ifs” turn into reality. Not just limited to fires and medical emergencies, our training prepares us for Hazardous Materials and Specialty rescues. With Billings unique landscapes it is not uncommon for us to perform Rim as well as River rescues.

Billings Firefighters are here to serve you, the citizens of Billings.

How to your firefighters learn to fight fires? Playing with doll houses... Kinda.

Books, classes, experience, watching and learning, and hands on practical experience. This "doll house" presents our future captains and upcoming firefighters a small scale look and how fire behaves and how dwellings respond to environmental factors and how to apply our tactics to help save your family.

Billings Fire Fighters

What makes a good team? Who are the players at the table to make the mission a success?

In our team, we must all function at 💯 or better everyday.

In this picture it's all smiling faces but the reality is this team is part of a machine that must work perfectly together all the time.

We have posted many retirements this year and we must fill those holes. The last month 7 L521 Members have been training to fill the captains role.

This group of instructors pictured are helping do that. This was taken just after they burned a training burn in a fully furnished room at our facility to help the new captains better understand fire behavior and investigations. Just one small bit of what instruction for them looks like.

Today a controlled burn got out of control on the West end. Crews we able to quickly extinguish the fire before it threatened any structures.

Just remember how dry the grasses are right now. Please use all precautions and fire safety practices.
We know it sure felt busy so far this year. Now we have the numbers to back that up. Run report from Jan/Feb showed 27 structure fires and 2 mobile home fires for a total of 29 working structure fires. Additionally, firefighters responded to 2 rescues, 1 animal rescue, and 43 MVA with injuries and 41 other MVAs without injury. 

Thank you all for your support. Our Family Serving Your Family 24/7/365.

In the last 48 hours there have been numerous large incidents. In addition to the large pileup on the interstate, firefighters have had four working fires, multiple small accidents, and numerous medical emergencies.

Please check on your neighbors, friends, and family in these times. As the effects of the last year begin to take a toll on our residents, make sure that residents aren't using space heaters improperly, or heating homes with their stoves or ovens, thawing pipes with open flames, or any other unsafe condition.

Keep an eye out for those struggling.

We are a big city with small town neighbors.
Stay safe Billings.
Another crazy day another sad story. We shared a go fund me for the mother burned out of her home Friday, now we have another family in need. 

Thank you billings for continuing to support those that are affected by tradegy.

As an official proclaimed weekend of the recognized profound sadness that grips our community... Please continue to be neighborly, care for each other, and continue to come together in this difficult time. We're there for you and with you.

Be advised, high wind = high call volume.

Many units will be responding to power lines down, arcing in trees, building alarms, among others.

Use caution as there will be increased emergency traffic as well as possible delayed service to lower priority calls.

A little visit to the "North Pole" down on Stone street. This year's display was dedicated to first responders so we had to take a trip.

We're all asking Santa for everyone's holiday to be merry.

Stay safe Billings! Here is to a better 2021

We care for many vulnerable individuals and we can help lead the way by simply protecting ourselves.

Slick roads and cold conditions are always in our head this time of year.

Firefighters extinguished a garage fire this morning before it was able to destroy the duplex.

Please remember seconds count and when you see us coming with our lights and sirens, pull to the right so we can do what we do.

Please drive safe in the snow Billings

⚠️⚠️⚠️We've worked with both of these men. We also know how poorly people pay attention in accident scenes. This senseless act should serve as a reminder to everyone to slow down and move over. It's also advisable to not film scenes in your phone as you drive through.⚠️⚠️⚠️

Our condolences to both families.😥

October is fire prevention month, the Billings fire department has put up a beautiful bunch of videos to help you learn how to stay safe.

Unfortunately we are still not opening our fire stations to visitors, but with the magic of the internet we can come to you.

Please check out Billings Fire Department on YouTube for videos and check out the Billings Fire Department website for more detailed lesson plans for educators.
