In 2014, a $17 million public safety no-tax bond was passed with 76 percent approval. The bond was used to build a new fire training center (opened June 2018). The bond’s passage also created capacity within the city’s general fund budget to upgrade or replace four aging fire stations using a mix of bond and general fund revenue. As of 2019, Stations #4, #8 and #9 are open and operational – ensuring our firefighters have the proper tools in the proper locations to keep the City of Boise and its citizens safe. Station #5, the final project made possible by the bond measure, is currently in design.

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.
