Welcome to the Official Website for the Bellevue Fire Department

The Bellevue Fire Department consists of up to forty volunteer members and does much more than just fighting fires; we have evolved into providing our community with up-to-date rescue applications that include auto, agricultural, and river rescues.

The department's members are highly motivated and are encouraged to take the time to advance themselves in the areas of firefighting and EMS applications. Many members are Firefighter I and Firefighter II certified, as well as having specific rescue certifications. Almost half of the membership is EMS certified at the minimum EMT-Basic Certification with several holding an EMT-Paramedic Certification. The above certifications require members to attend countless hours of classroom instruction, as well as participate in hands-on instruction. Members are also encouraged to attend various Fire and EMS schools throughout the year that are paid for by the department, but require the member to "volunteer" his/her time to attend.

In addition to Fire and EMS certifications and classes, members are required to attend each monthly business meeting held on the 2nd Monday of the month and also attend the monthly drill night held on the 4th Monday of the month. Members are also encouraged to attend Rescue Squad Drill night, usually held the 1st Monday of the month, and also attend monthly work detail nights held on the 3rd Monday of the month.

Since our organization is 100% volunteer, and receives minimal funding through taxation, our members are once again called upon to help with the departments three (3) fundraisers held each year. These fundraisers allow the department to purchase new and modern equipment, which wouldn't otherwise be possible. Lastly, members are called upon to help with community and civic events which include the 4th of July Heritage Days Celebration, The Christmas Parade, and any other special civic event that comes to Bellevue.


All members are required to carry pagers, which alert when the Fire Department is needed. Members are expected to respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if they are able.
