The Boise Fire Department is donating a fire engine to an Eastern Idaho department.
On January 10, Firth Fire Department caught fire and lost its firehouse, the contents inside, and two fire engines. Following the tragedy, fire departments across the state have been sending items to help. The City of Boise donated a fully loaded surplus fire engine that would have been otherwise been auctioned.
Boise Fire also donated various supplies to Firth.
“What started as a simple phone call to their fire chief has grown into a major donation effort by departments across the Treasure Valley and the state. Fire and EMS departments from all over Idaho have stepped up to help us support this volunteer fire department and give their members and the community they serve a fresh start,” Boise Fire Chief Mark Niemeyer said.
