BE A FLORENCE FIRE CADET
The Florence Rural Fire District maintains an active cadet program for individuals between the ages of 14 -17 years. Being a fire cadet offers valuable training and experience. An individual does not have to have any prior firefighting, medical or rescue skills in order to be a cadet. The Florence Rural Fire District offers training for each cadet to hone their skills at their level of comfort. Being a cadet is rewarding and exciting.

OUTSIDE BURNING: OPEN
All outside burning is open. Outdoor burning is open for the remainder of the fall burn season, which ends November 30, 2016. A valid burn permit is still necessary and make sure to activate the permit each time you plan to burn. Some burn permits have specific restrictions, please make sure to follow the instructions with your permit. When burning, please take extra precautions as grasses and fuels are still very dry and will ignite easier and burn faster. Be Responsible, Be Fire Safe!

Are you prepared for a wildfire in your area?
The Florence Volunteer Fire Department, has recently taken delivery of a new fire engine.
This new engine is on a 2016 Ford F-550 diesel chassis. It carries 500 gallons of water and pumps 135 gallons a minute. Large side compartments provide amble storage for fire gear and tools. It is also equipped with a hose reel, scene lighting and various tools and equipment.
This new engine is a four wheel drive unit and is also a multi functional unit, with it’s primary function being for wildland fire control. This engine will also respond to structure fires, vehicle fires, medical emergencies, physical rescues and other calls for service in order to better serve the Florence community.
This vehicle was built in co-operation with the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, which allowed the Florence Fire Department to save approximately 50% on the cost of a similar new vehicle.
Burn permits required between March 1 and November 31 of each year.
