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.

Thank you Billings Firefighters!

Billings Fire Fighters

#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.

Love that!! Way to go Billings. Thank 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!

Awesome!

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!!

Ron

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 🚒

Love this!

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!

Thank you for all you do for our community!

⚠️⚠️⚠️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.

Holy cow! Wasn't even paying attention.

Sweet!
This is what happens when you stop too fast in a fire truck.

JK... Saturdays are rig days. Clean and inventory, top to bottom. Most fire trucks have their motor under the cab so the cab raises to access the motor.

Billings Firefighters Endorses Tim Fox for Governor. 

Fox has stood with firefighters in the past and firefighters will stand with those that have supported us. 

We have tried numerous times to meet with Greg Gianforte and he will not meet with us. Greg Gianforte is out of touch with our values and we believe Tim Fox is the best person to sit at the helm of Montana.

While we're all in this social shutdown, we're still needing food. Thank you to all our local restaurants that are able to go the take out route.  Tonight we hit the 406 Kitchen & Taproom for dinner. 

Stay strong, stay healthy, stay home.
👩‍🚒The Fire Department has closed all stations to the public, as well as closed off all outside travel. We are still 100% operational and ready to respond to all calls. 

Please note in the press release from the city administrators desk that city operations have changed.

Operationally, we ask that if you call 911, please let the dispatcher know if you are experiencing any flu like symptoms so we can make sure our firefighters and paramedics are able to use the proper protective equipment.

Thank you.

Remember, Be kind, Be safe, and use good information.
Blood donors are needed amidst this covid19 shutdown. If you are healthy and willing, the need has not stopped. We still encourage social distancing, however, vital services still need to continue.

I donated for the first time today, super easy and staff are there are being very vigilant with their decontamination procedures. 

@vitalantorg #dontateblood #VitalantBloodCenter #vitalantmt
The need is now. If you are able, the blood supply in the area is getting low. #Blood #DonateBlood #VitalantBloodCenter #BloodDonationsSaveLives #MontanaNews #BillingsMontana #YellowstoneCounty
In the interest of following the CDC recommendations, the parade will not be. 

Not unexpected, but bummer.
We would like to remind people that good flu and cold prevention is also great for #COVID19  

Please remember that this is not something to panic about, however we still need to remember basic hygiene.

If you have any questions, your Billings Firefighters will be happy to answer them. We have been working closely with Firefighters from the Washington State area, Riverstone Unified Health Command, AMR, and many other agencies. We are well versed in what needs to be done to protect our community.

You can message directly or ask in the comments.

Dear Billings,
We would like to thank you for your amazing support. Our team raised over $13,000 dollars with your help. 

Unfortunately, due to the Novel Corona Virus the climb sponsors decided that the best course of action was to postpone the climb. Exposing 2000+ firefighters to an relatively unknown virus and allowing them to pass it to their communities would be a bad idea. 

As of now we do not know when the event will happen. The good news is the money raised is still going to a good cause and all that fundraising will still benefit those that the LLS helps. 

Follow us on our social media pages, when the new date is announced, you can bet our firefighters will be attending.
Come and see us at the parade! St Patrick's Day parade will be March 14th. There is a new parade route this year so check the parade route website!

Crash between Billings garbage truck and motorcyclist leaves rider pinned under tire

@ktvq website for story
There is a certain beauty to this time of year. The leaves are gone, the cold has set in. But once and a while the sun comes out and warms the world. Winter in Montana is a roller coaster and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Combustibles on the stove is the cause of a fire that forced occupants of four apartments to evacuate early Friday morning.

Firefighters arrived just after 4:00 a.m. as the fire spread in the kitchen of unit one.

Deputy Fire Marshal Andrew McLein says the stove had been left on in the kitchen.

The fire resulted in heavy fire damage to the kitchen and heavy smoke damage throughout the unit. The estimated cause of damage to the unit is around $60,000.

Today Watsonville Firefighters Local 1272 welcomed home one of its brothers. 
Captain Lucas was involved in a hunting accident in Montana several weeks ago. With the love and support of family, friends, and the fire family, he began his recovery. Captain Lucas has a long road of continued recovery ahead but the family of Local 1272 has full confidence that he can and will accomplish anything he sets his mind to. Today he flew home with his family. Local 1272, Aptos La Selva Fire, Scott’s Valley Fire, WPD, Cal Fire, and members of the community were on deck to give a warm welcome. 
We would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Billing Fire Department in Montana. We are forever grateful for the love and support you showed our brother and his family. You exemplify what it means to be brothers in the Fire Service by taking care of a firefighter who was a stranger. Words cannot suffice for the selfless actions you took and we thank you.

The initial report was of a fire outside a residential structure, just east of  64th st west, off Hesper Road, according to Battalion Chief Ed Regele. The call came in just after 9 p.m.
If the call had come in any later, the home may have been a complete loss, Regele said.

It was quitting time on a Friday evening, Dec. 18, 1992, and Phil Frank was heading out the door of Billings Fire Station 1 and on his way to a Christmas party when the alarms started broadcasting over the radio from dispatch.

A jet had just crashed into a warehouse just northeast of downtown Billings, killing all eight people aboard.
