City of Boise Breaks Ground on New Fire Station 13

April 3, 2024

On April 3, 2024, community members joined Boise Mayor Lauren McLean, Boise Fire Chief Mark Niemeyer, Boise Police Chief Ron Winegar, and Boise City Councilmembers as they broke ground on the new Boise Fire Station 13.

“Building Fire Station 13 in this area of the city has been a long-term discussion and we are proud to see it break ground today,” Boise Fire Chief Mark Niemeyer said. “This location is the solution we have been looking for to provide an effective and efficient emergency response to Northwest Boise.”

The new station location, 6124 N Bogart Ln., will provide greater coverage in our northwest community to achieve Boise Fire’s travel time goal of five minutes for first arriving apparatus. In 2023, there were 2,214 calls for service in Station 13’s 5-minute response area.

“For too long, Northwest Boise has been underserved by emergency services, but that changes today,” said Mayor Lauren McLean. “I’m also proud to announce that Fire Station 13 will be powered 100 percent with electricity, getting us another step closer to meeting the city’s climate action goal. By embracing sustainable practices, we’re not just building a safer community today; we’re safeguarding our city for future generations.”

Station 13 will staff one fire engine with four firefighters, a brush rig to respond to the foothills, and a drop-in office for Boise Police Officers working in the area. The build is expected to be done in fall of 2025.
