Message from the Chief
On behalf of the 295 professional men and women that serve you everyday, it is my pleasure to present to you the Boise Fire Department 2022 annual community report. In order to meet the demands of a growing community, in 2022 we developed a 10-year master growth plan to ensure service levels across our City are maintained. This includes adding services in current and future under-served areas that will meet the promise of a City for Everyone. The past 12 months also included several high-profile responses in which our firefighters performed admirably. These included the Idaho Youth Ranch warehouse fire, Idaho Wildfire deployments to Cascade and Salmon-Challis, several house fires under challenging conditions, as well as an after action review of our response to the Boise Town Square Mall active shooter incident. In 2022 we launched a podcast, BFD MissionStrong, in an effort to communicate our history and inform our community about the services we provide. As we move into 2023 we look forward to continuing our mission of service.
Stay safe and Be Well.
