The fire district covers 151 sq. miles, including the City of Gooding, with approximately 7,000 customers that to serve. Along with structural protection, we provide wild land, hazmat, EMS, and public education services. The department consists of a paid Fire Chief, two paid Deputy Chiefs, seven paid on call Officers, and several paid on call Firefighters. The Gooding Fire District is covered 24/7 with highly trained personnel. Outside the department they have mutual aid agreements with all of the fire departments in the county and several others in surrounding counties. They conduct their training drills every Wednesday of the week at 7 p.m. They are a tax based fire department so as the city and county grows they are able to do so as well. When the local economy is going through rough times we have to look elsewhere for funding and support.

Feel free to stop by the station Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and check out YOUR department. You can also find them on Facebook, Gooding Fire District.

The Gooding Fire District meetings are held at the station at 9 a.m. every second Friday of the month.

Burning Permits: Fire Chief Brandon Covey urges everyone to get a Burning Permit before burning.  All fires must be extinguished by sundown!

Burning Permits can be picked up at the City Hall at no charge.
