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, and Water & Technical Rescue 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.
