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.

Billings Fire Fighters

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.

Billings Firefighters and the Billings Fire Department are committed to controlling the spread of this outbreak. That being said, the need to train new recruits to fill vacancies remains high. Our training department is taking this seriously and balancing the need train them and keep them safe.

We will continue to highlight bits and pieces of their training as they progress from a blank canvas to a fully trained and ready group of Firefighters.

👩‍🚒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.

We were just alerted to someone calling around pretending to be Montana Firefighters. We will never call and ask for money or personal information. 
Be wary and stay frosty!

Happy Halloween! Remember to be safe tonight! oh and #clapback at @BillingsPD #billingspolice
The @albertabairtheater is getting a major update, but today we got a tour to see the building skeleton in its naked state. This intimate tour helps us know how buildings are built and how they might react in a fire. It's a integral part of our job and we also get to see some cool stuff. 

Part of the upgrades includes a modern fire alarm system. The old system however has some relics hanging around (literally). This knife used to be a part of the stage fire curtain system. In case of a fire, someone would need to cut the rope next to this sign and the fire curtain would fall, protecting the audience from a stage fire. 

In the new building this will be automated and tied into the alarm system, but the old stuff is still pretty cool. 

@albertabairtheater , your new building will be pretty awesome when finished!

The driver of the mustang's condition is non life threatening injuries as of now. 

The chief was treated and released. 

Extensive damage to both vehicles, BPD is investigating

We want to remind people to SLOW down and buckle up. 

We wish a speedy recovery to Chief and the other driver.

Eighteen years ago, 343 FDNY members died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Since then, more than 200 IAFF members have died from 9/11-related illnesses.
