Bond Projects

As Boise has grown, its fire facilities are no longer located or equipped to best protect the neighborhoods they serve. Thanks to a no-tax bond passed in 2014 with 76 percent of the vote, the Boise Fire Department has replaced, or is replacing, four outdated fire stations that have passed their useful life.

These new stations meet current seismic and building codes to ensure our firefighters can respond quickly when an emergency strikes and meet gender equity standards to allow both men and women to serve as firefighters.

Fire Training Facility

Fire Training Facility

The bond also allowed the Boise Fire Department to build a new firefighter training facility that meets National Fire Protection Association’s minimum standards. This state-of-the-art training facility makes it possible for Boise Fire Department and its partners to be leading providers of public safety training by producing well-educated and realistically trained first responders. The results are a dramatic enhancement in the state of readiness and preparedness. 

The facility held its grand opening on June 1, 2018 and the first class of fire recruits that trained in the facility graduated in December 2018.
