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.
#Firefighters are on shift for 24 hours at a time. We eat, sleep, and see the worst and toughest parts of this town. Some days are long and the tunnel closes in.
But mealtime is one of those reprieves. We buy and cook all our meals. We plan meals sometimes to see those plans change to take-out #pizza in an instant, but no matter what seems to happen, we have a meal together. We sit for a spell and converse and it eases everybody's soul.
So tonight, we say thank you to the lady at the heights Albertsons with your son. We were checking out and a #structurefire came over the radio. We left everything there and usually the @albertsons staff (they rock) will put our cart in the walk in cooler and then we'll come back and get it. But tonight, the lady in front paid for our meal.
So from the 7 firefighters at station 1... Thank you.
If you read this post this far and want to help out your firefighters, please #payitforward to someone that you see that needs it. Maybe this can be the start of an old email chain letter but for the positive.
Thank you again and #staysafe Billings. We love you.

A huge thank you to that woman.... what a great example for that child. We could all learn from her how to be a blessing to others.... May she be blessed for her love of community in taking care of our firefighters from Station 1.
Thank you for sharing and thank you for what you do for our community !
Awww, good on her. And good on you. Thanks for caring about the common good every dang day!
Thank you to the lady! Stay safe
And thank you to our firefighters!
Win, win, thank you for a great show of support to all involved!!
First off thanks to this woman and her child. Small acts of kindness go unnoticed by most, but have a far reaching impact. Next: There is so much more to the firehouse dinner table. On a 24 hour shift the “dinner table” sees breakfast, lunch and dinner. It sees table top exercises of calls we have run. It sees map book work. It sees studying for exams. It sees countless stories from on and off the JOB, of friends, family, good and bad. One of the things I miss most about the J O B is the brother and sisterhood in the firehouse. Spending a third of your life with these men and women, in hardship, truly makes them FAMILY.
Inspirational!! So much good out there <3 Let's keep the good going !!
I sometimes listen to the Police scanner and I hear first hand how many times each night you are called out. Billings Fire and AMR need a huge round of applause for their dedication and willingness to be there for us. It never stops. First responders, our hero's.
I love this ♥️ taking care our firefighters 🚒
Thank you guys for everything you do and keeping us safe during this rough time.
Great story. Love my first responders and service providers. And to the few who actually do pay it forward, thank you.
Amazing. As a daughter of a retired fireman, I understand how that goes and how great it is for the community to pay it forward like that. And as a Irish daughter of an Irish retired fireman, I love the shout out to Pug Mahons . Thanks for all you do!
Just how amazing is this mural! We drive under that underpass so many times per day, it is awesome.
And don't leave out the kulture krew that kills it with their artwork around town too!
More art everywhere.
