Welcome to the Emmett Fire Department! The Emmett Fire Department currently provides Fire and Rescue services to our community.† In 2007, we became licensed as a Basic Life Support-Non Transport agency with the State of Idaho Emergency Medical Services.

The Emmett Fire Department protects approximately 4 square miles, and 7000 citizens, along with mutual aid to our neighboring communities and fire districts.† We also provide assistance to our federal and state agencies in the Wildland-Urban Interface.

As of October 1, 2007, Emmett Fire Department became a combination department with the hiring of a full-time Fire Chief, along with 17 dedicated paid-per-call volunteers. All our members are highly trained in fire suppression, along with many rescue disciplines, haz-mat operations and decon. Seven of our members are state certified EMT-B, and five of our members are currently obtaining their state medical certification.

We serve the City of Emmett from one station, located at 231 South Washington, and future plans for a second station on the eastern part of the city.
