Big Sky Fire Department

← Back to all Community Projects

The Big Sky Fire Department (BSFD) is an all-hazards emergency response agency that serves an 80 square mile fire district spread across both Gallatin and Madison Counties.  BSFD also responds outside of its district to emergency incidents in a 200 square miles area of state lands, national forests as well as portions of Yellowstone National Park itself.  Responding to over 850 emergency incidents annually, 60% of BSFD’s services are provided to non-residents of the Big Sky community.

BSFD provides Advanced Life Support Emergency Medical Services, Structural & Wildland Fire Suppression response, Hazardous Materials Incident response, Water & Technical Rescue Services among other services. In addition, BSFD performs building code inspections, development plan review, First Aid & CPR education, fire safety education and participates in fire prevention efforts that include providing defensible space education for properties in our wildland urban interface environment.

An energetic organization of career and on-call Firefighters, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians, the people of BSFD takes great pride in their work and our excellent customer service evaluations as measured by post-incident client surveys.
