Fire and EMS crews across Idaho donate supplies to Firth Fire Department

January 18, 2022

On January 10th the Firth Fire Department in Eastern Idaho suffered a devastating fire resulting in a complete loss of their firehouse, 2 fire engines, and the contents inside. Fire and EMS departments from around the Treasure Valley and the state rose to the occasion to help this department in need.

Boise Fire and the State Fire Marshal’s office have been working to coordinate donations, and fire departments from across the state have reached out to offer donations of items such as personal protection equipment, firefighting equipment, medical supplies, communication devices, and much more. The Boise Fire Department was able to donate a fully loaded surplus fire engine that was set for auction. Several other departments in the Treasure Valley donated various items, including Emmett, Kuna, Eagle, Star, Nampa, and Weiser.

“What started as a simple phone call to their Fire Chief has grown into a major donation effort by departments across the Treasure Valley and the state. Fire and EMS departments from all over Idaho have stepped up to help us support this volunteer fire department and give their members and the community they serve a fresh start,” said Boise Fire Chief Mark Niemeyer. “We appreciate the fact that no matter how big or small, we’re ready to help each other out in times of need.”

The engine and additional donated supplies were delivered to the Firth Fire Department this morning.
