FAIRFIELD VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT Inc.
The Fairfield Fire Department is a 100% volunteer organization dedicated to prevent and minimize the loss of life, damage and destruction of property from the adverse effects of fire. We have been providing service to the Fairfield community since the late 1930’s. We currently have 28 active members in our town of 700 residents.
Fairfield firefighters are your neighbors—men and women who live in the Fairfield community. They come from all backgrounds and occupations. They are not compensated for their time either in responding to emergency calls or during training. They are professionals who perform these services for reasons that go far beyond money. These people have chosen to serve their community as firefighters. They are supported by their families and by the community members. All fire department members are required to obtain a minimum of 30 hours of training each year. Many members obtain far more than that—up to one hundred hours of training annually. Fairfield is also home to many of the most dedicated and well trained Rescue Technicians in Montana. This team specializes in high angle, confined space, swift water, and ice rescue. Each discipline requires many additional hours of training every year.
The Fairfield Fire Department owns two fully-equipped engines, one 2800-gallon water tender, one rescue vehicle and three attack/brush units. This equipment is housed in our recently expanded station in Fairfield. The Fire hall is also home to the areas only in-house confined space training prop, and a state of the art training facility.
