The Emergency Management Division seeks to ensure the safety and long-term quality of life in Boise and Southwest Idaho by creating and maintaining a strong emergency management and hometown security program to prepare for threats and hazards identified through regional community planning.
The Boise Fire Department Emergency Management Division has several goals:
- Emergency Operations Plans (EOP)
- creating and organizing emergency training for city staff that will improve emergency response and city resiliency
- managing emergency grant opportunities with a focus on preparedness, prevention and mitigation
Additionally, staff also coordinate large planned events, like Road to X Games, or unplanned incidents in Boise.
