Moscow Volunteer Fire Department



The Moscow Volunteer Fire Department (MVFD) members volunteer thousands of hours of training and countless hours of response time every year.  Currently, the MVFD has approximately 100 volunteers providing fire protection service and volunteer ambulance service to 6.1 square miles in the city of Moscow and 128 square miles in the Moscow Rural Fire District.

The MVFD also forges an active bond between the long term residents of Moscow and the students at the University of Idaho. Many students serve as student resident volunteer firefighters.  Working cooperatively with the University of Idaho, these students live in the fire stations at no cost and provide quick response of equipment to the sites where it is needed. Many of these residents go on to careers as firefighters and administrators in other departments throughout the country.

At present, we have 24 student resident volunteers that live at the stations, and another 30-40 student volunteers that respond as firefighters and/or EMT's from home or school.  The remainder of our volunteers are residents of Moscow, ID or surrounding communities that volunteer to serve. 

The MVFD provides annual EMT or FIRE trainings for volunteers who live in Moscow, and are planning on being in the area for at least 2 years.
