Welcome to the web site for your Coeur d’Alene Fire Department. Please explore the various pages of the site and meet our dedicated personnel. Also you can learn about our equipment, our programs as well as discovering fire safety tips for your home and business.
The Coeur d’Alene Fire Department is a class three rated City by the Idaho Survey and Rating Bureau. That is as high a fire defense rating as there is in our State. We are a full service Fire Department providing fire, emergency medical first response and transport, and technical rescue services to our valued residents and visitors. Last year we responded to over 7,000 calls for service which makes us the second busiest Departments in our State. We do this out of three fire stations and a minimum on shift staffing level of fourteen personnel. Fire Station one houses our Ladder Company and an ambulance. Station Two houses an engine company and an ambulance and Station three houses an engine/rescue company as well as our Paramedic chase car.
As members of the Kootenai County Emergency Medical Services System (KCEMSS) we provide Paramedic coverage as well as transport responsibilities to the southern part of Kootenai County. We offer continuing education as well as a quality assurance program to volunteer ambulance services in our response area. All members are certified to at least the EMT-B level with a majority being certified to the EMT-Intermediate level. We have paramedic’s at all three stations.
We are proud to be one of three State of Idaho Technical Response Teams. Along with the Boise Fire Department and Pocatello/Twin Falls Fire Departments we will provide technical response to our State.
Our special events section is continually working to plan and organize the many events held in our City. The biggest is Ironman Coeur d’Alene where over 2,000 athletes from through the world compete in this grueling event.
We are thrilled to have completed all major construction projects from the public safety bond. The Fire Station 2 remodel/addition is complete as is the construction of our training grounds. We have recently moved into our new headquarters and the station one remodel was completed as well.
As always we thank the voters for passing our public safety bond which made these projects possible.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of our staff. We are here for one and only one reason, to serve you.
