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.
