The Fire Department fills a vital role in our community. Preventing fires and protecting our homes and property are some of the services our volunteers are called on to provide.
The department coordinates the provision of our fire and tornado warning sirens. The department works closely with the Custer County Emergency Response Committee to ensure that we will be ready for the emergencies which may threaten our area. The department regularly tests the warning sirens, assists with the addition of new sirens and replaces their batteries when necessary. The tornado sirens are tested the first Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. March thru September.
The City of Broken Bow’s ISO or Fire Insurance Rating is a 4.
Many life saving services such as ambulance service are provided by the Rescue Unit. We all hope that we or our loved ones will never have to use some of these services but we certainly are thankful they are available. The ambulance service can help with a life-threatening situation, provide immediate medical assistance and provide transportation to our local hospital or regional hospital. The Unit is served by a very dedicated group of volunteers that choose to take the time to receive training and provide vital services to our community.
