Who we are

Established in 1977, the North Bench Fire District has proudly served the people of Boundary County for over 40 years.

The North Bench Fire District covers over 60 square miles in Boundary County, we cover north and west of Bonners Ferry and west of Moyie Springs. We hold training ever Thursday night at 7:00 PM in our station 1 location by three mile.

Our mission is to preserve life and property promote public safety and foster economic growth through leadership management and actions as an all risk life safety response provider

dedication is

What We Do

Preserve life and property promote public safety and foster economic growth through leadership management and actions as an all risk life safety response provider.

By The Numbers

Our district is having an explosion in residential & commercial growth, North Bench is the fastest growing district in Boundary County.

The decline in volunteers nationally, affects us all, the work/life balance is difficult. Combined with ever-increasing call for service, the limited resources available, now more than ever the need for volunteers at all levels (firefighters, Support and Auxiliary) is at a premium! Small pieces of time can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

The Family:  is why we do this, for their safety, and the overall welfare of the community.

Interests:  in helping the community.

Me: the individual, me, what forms the foundation.

Everything else: all that makes us, us.

Time is a precious commodity, we don’t work or volunteer to make money we give of our time for different rewards.
