Station Information

Welcome!


On behalf of the firefighters from IAFF Local 271 with the Missoula Fire Department, welcome to our website. Your Missoula Fire Department is proud to be allowed to serve you, and we hope you find the information on these pages helpful. Missoula's firefighters perform a broad range of services for you - and we appreciate very much the support of our wonderful community.

Our administrative offices are located at our Headquarters station at 625 E Pine Street - and those offices are generally staffed from Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our operations firefighters staff 5 stations 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Station 2

Station Two
247 Mount Ave.
Missoula, MT 59801


Station # Two reopened in March of 2008. This station is currently staffed by a crew of three and houses a Type 1 fire engine, a wildland fire engine, and water tender. This new building replaced the original station which was constructed in 1954.

This new fire station replaces a sixty-year old station in the heart of Missoula. The building’s design and scale strive to integrate the facility into the surrounding neighborhood while incorporating durable materials that ensure the building’s longevity. The facility’s day room, kitchen, sleeping rooms, offices, and exercise room are designed to meet the specific needs of the staff and the new drive-thru truck bays allow for a fast, safe response to emergencies. The station also has state of the art, solar hot water and photovoltaic power generation systems, which have produced significant energy savings.

Missoula, MT 59803

Station No. Three reopened after remodeling was completed in December of 2008. This station is currently staffed by a crew of three and houses a structural fire engine, a wildland fire engine, and a ladder truck. The original facility opened in 1975.
 


Station 4
Oct 15, 2010

Station Four
3011 Latimor St.
Missoula, MT 59808

Station No. Four opened in June of 1994. This station is currently staffed by a crew of three and houses a structural fire engine, wildland fire engine, a ladder truck, and the mechanic's utility vehicle. Located just behind Station No. Four is our Training Division's burn room / training tower. The station also houses a maintenance bay, office, and tool / supply room for the Master Mechanic. The maintenance bay opened in September of 2007. This new facility is used for the repair and maintenance of fire apparatus and equipment.

Station No. Four is the first in Montana to be partially solar powered. It is estimated that the system will produce approximately 6,500 kwh of electricity each year. The system is primarily a grid intertie system with battery backup. Power stored in the battery bank is used only in the event of a power outage and powers circuits critical for the station's operations. The battery bank will easily supply circuits critical for station operation, including door openers, radios, some lighting, and the computer for up to six hours. The system was funded through a $50,000 grant from the Universal Systems Benefit Charge administered by the Montana Power Co. Sunelco of Hamilton, MT installed the system. It became operational in March of 2001. We welcome you to stop in to see the system, though it is recommended you call first to make sure the station's crew is in quarters. If you would like more information about the project, you may contact Battalion Chief Ed Brunsvold at (406) 552-6210 who was primarily responsible for the project.

 


Station 5
Oct 15, 2010

Station Five
6501 Lower Miller Creek Rd.
Missoula, MT 59803


Station No. Five opened in March of 2007. This station is staffed by a crew of three and houses a structural fire engine and a wildland fire engine.

This new fire station was constructed near the edge of the city limits on the south side of Missoula.  The city is rapidly growing in this direction and the location was selected to provide faster response times to this ever expanding area of service. The station was designed to house three fire trucks with drive-thru bays, create comfortable living quarters for the staff on duty, and provide a dedicated training/meeting room for department wide use as well as use by the community and neighborhood groups.
