The volunteers of the Boone County Fire Protection District provide EMS, fire suppression, and rescue services to the citizens of Boone County. These services are provided from 14 fire stations placed strategically throughout the department’s 500 square mile jurisdiction. On average, the department answers over 4,000 calls for service each year. This is possible only through the dedicated efforts of resident and non-resident volunteer firefighters.

Fire Suppression

The Fire District responds to a variety of fire related incidents. Most notably, our volunteers extinguish an average of 15 structure fires each year. Additionally, the department responds to numerous wildfires throughout the year. The peak wildfire season in Boone County is typically February-April and September-October.

Rescues

With two major highways traversing the county, our volunteers respond to a large number of vehicle accidents. We currently have two heavy rescue squads in the department to handle accidents that require extrication with the jaws of life.

EMS

The vast majority of incident responses within the county are emergency medical responses. We respond to provide initial care and assessment because often times are stations are closer to the incident than the responding ambulances. Firefighters within the organization complete an EMT-Basic program upon entry into the department to prepare them for this role.
