About Us


     Established in 1909, the Jerome City Fire Department is a combined part time and career Fire Department. We provide the most cost effective and efficient protection possible against the grave effects of fire, disaster, and medical emergency to the community and its citizens through education, mitigation, preparedness, response, and  fire code enforcement. These services are provided within 5.9 square miles of service area, utilizing two stations. The department consists of fourteen full-time staff and twelve part time members. The Department has mutual aid agreements with ten communities within the surrounding area and enjoys the benefit of shared resources beyond the bounds of mutual aid. The department also supports the United States Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for wild land firefighting, as well as the Idaho Department of Lands.
