RLFR Fire Division

Known for its scenic mountain vistas, year-round recreation opportunities, and vibrant social scene, Red Lodge is unique – and so are its emergency response needs.  The City of Red Lodge and our surrounding Carbon County service area - including Red Lodge Rural Fire District 7 and the Red Lodge - Roberts Ambulance District - is home to approximately 3,500 residents, but in the summer and winter tourist seasons, visitors can outnumber residents.

Red Lodge Fire Rescue consists of three operational divisions - Fire, EMS and Search and Rescue - as well as a Support Division and administrative personnel.  We respond to approximately 700 - 800 calls for service annually within our service areas which include the City of Red Lodge, Red Lodge Rural Fire District 7 and the Red Lodge - Roberts Ambulance District.  We respond to calls for structure and wildland fires, motor vehicle accidents, emergency medical incidents, lost and injured hikers and much more.  The Fire, EMS, Search and Rescue and Support divisions are staffed by approximately 90 volunteers and 12 full-time and part-time paid staff.  Volunteers are the backbone of each division and many of our volunteers participate in more than one division.  Red Lodge Fire Rescue is proud to serve our community and is honored to receive the incredible support given by our community.
