Fire Department


Mission Statement

 The members of the Rupert City Fire and Rescue Department, dedicated to our efforts, will provide for the safety and welfare of the public through the preservation of life, property and the environment in a safe and timely manor.

Welcome to the City of Rupert Fire Department. Established in 1916 by William E. Gelling, the fire department has served the citizens of Rupert and the surrounding area with pride and dedication for nearly a century. A list of firefighters is on display at the station showing every firefighter who has served on the department since its installation. The department is rich in local history with registers and items from the earliest meetings and fires. From then to now, the firefighters have taken great pride in their training to ensure their safety as well as the safety of the citizens and visitors to our area. This is demonstrated through the numerous hours of training as well as community education. The dedication from the firefighters and the commitment to the department is the cornerstone to our success. We challenge ourselves to be the best we can be and to find better and more effective ways to accomplish our goals. We hope you find our Fire Department page useful and informative. If you have suggestions on how to serve or inform you better, please contact us.
