Message from the Fire Chief

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the City of Kalispell Fire Department.  Kalispell, the Flathead County seat, is located in beautiful northwest Montana just minutes away from the gateway to Glacier National Park (U.S. National Park Service), Flathead Lake, the Whitefish Ski Resort and many other natural getaways.  The Kalispell Fire Department is proud of the history of our department and the services that we provide to the communities we serve.

The Kalispell Fire Department provides an all-risk all-hazard service that includes fire suppression, fire prevention and education, EMS/ALS response and transport, Regional Hazardous Materials Team, technical rescue response and a special response SWAT medic to say the least.  We do this with just 29 floor personnel and three support staff.  Please, whether you live here or are just visiting, take a look around and you may find useful information that may interest you.

Thank you again for your interest in the Kalispell Fire Department website.  I hope that you find these pages useful and give you a better understanding of what we do and to help provide better safety for families, yours and ours.
