BOISE FIRE DEPARTMENT NEWS

COMING SOON! SCANNER

A license has been acquired by this site to broadcast (via RadioReference.com) the dispatch and tactical channels now on digital frequencies.  Get ready to hear the calls as they are dispatched, and traffic on the other Boise Fire Channels.  A link will appear, which will re-direct to the RadioReference.com site.  You can still use your computer and listen to the action at the same time.

 

ENGINES 1 AND 7 RECEIVE NEW ENGINES

Engine 1 and 7 have received new Pierce Arrow XT engines.  The former Spartan/BME engines are now in reserve status.

RADIO FREQUENCIES CHANGES

The fire department has moved to the 700 MHz frequencies permanently as of Tuesday, June 30 at 1000 hours.  The old frequencies will be used for tactical channels for wildland fires and for BLM channels.

 Welcome!
 


A volunteer fire department was formed for fire protection in the growing city of Boise in 1876.  Because of fierce competition between the three different departments, in 1902, the city council voted to abolish the volunteer fire services and create a city-operated service.  This became the Boise Fire Department.

The focus of this site is to highlight the apparatus, both past and present.  Boise has, I think, the best apparatus in the country, and these apparatus change through the years and will into the future as Boise grows even more than the current 415,000 service area, as well as surrounding communities such as Meridian, Kuna, Star, and Eagle.

Welcome to this site.  If you like (or love) fire apparatus, this site is dedicated to those who have helped with the information.  I have taken all of the pictures on this site.  I hope that you enjoy the apparatus pictures as much as I enjoy the apparatus. If you have any questions, please let me know on the Contact Form.

Note:  If you are wanting to schedule a tour, please contact the respective station you would like to tour and talk with the captain, or call the Administration Office to schedule your tour.  This site does not have the authority to do such scheduling.
