Our mission is to provide safe and professional responses to fires and other emergencies for the protection of lives and property to the citizens of the Town of Eagar. The department provides inspections, prescribed burns, and prevention awareness to reduce the risk of fires.
The Eagar Fire Department consists of 25 volunteer firefighters from the community, who undergo formal training before serving on the department. With an I.S.O. rating of 4, the department consists of 2 structure engines, a Type 3 wildland engine, a Type 6 wildland engine, a Rescue truck, and a support van for firefighter rehabilitation.
Each year on the Fourth of July, a pancake breakfast is held, which serves as the primary fundraiser for the department. The breakfast is held prior to the annual parade, at the Fire Station adjacent to Ramsey Park. The breakfast is open to residents and visitors who wish to support the efforts of the Volunteer Department.
The Eagar Fire Department runs a variety of programs to assist the community through safety education and prevention. One of these is our Youth Cadet Program which provides an opportunity for students 16 to 18 years of age to learn more about a carreer in firefighting.
Please contact the Eagar Fire Department for more information on becoming a Volunteer or Cadet Member..
