The floods of September 2013 caused us to postpone the fire safety sale until this spring. it's back, better than ever!

As always, residents can update fire extinguishers, CO detectors and smoke alarms, at below-retail prices, thanks to our friends at McGuckin Hardware

Everyone will have an opportunity to put out a LIVE FIRE under the supervision of a volunteer firefighter.

BMFPD Auxiliary members support the department's emergency missions without wearing pagers or going out on incidents. Members raise funds, provide public education to district residents, ensure that responders have food and drink during emergencies and training, and give recognition to our dedicated responders.

Auxiliary members select jobs that suit their time and skills, and get to work together in teams during the year.

Thanks for a Record-breaking Boulder Mountain Handmade Sale

Boulder Mountain Handmade is a 40-year tradition in the fire district, offering works by district residents. As always, our best customers also come from the district, so the Auxiliary thanks its district volunteers, crafters AND customers for shattering all previous records for the sale. Thanks to the efforts of so many talented folks, the Auxiliary raised over $11,000 to support the Department AND raised significant donations to help our neighbor fire departments, Lefthand Volunteer FPD and Jamestown Volunteer FPD, which suffered huge losses in equipment during the September flood.

We are aware that this continues to be a difficult situation for us all. Thanks again for your patience and understanding.  BMFPD firefighters and a host of other volunteers are working as hard as we can to respond to emergencies and restore road access, utilities and some semblance of normal life.  Many of our volunteer firefighters have had less than 12 hours of sleep since this disaster began on Wednesday.
