Reminder: Keep the way clear to nearest hydrant
The Seeley Lake Fire Department is committed to your safety. Smoke Detectors are available free of charge at the station.
Please stop in and receive your free detector.
House fires increase in the colder months. Wood stoves and heat sources are cranking up. We loan out free chimney brushes in an effort to decrease chimney fires.
If you have a smoke detector, this is a good time to check the battery. Smoke Detectors should not be older than 10 years.
Smoke detectors save lives…don't be caught while you sleep tonight, without a working smoke detector and a pre-planned home evacuation route. We can help you with home evacuation planning.
Fire Chief and Crew,
Seeley Lake Rural Fire District

SLRFD needs Volunteer Firefighters and EMT's.
We are currently seeking motivated men and woman living in or near Seeley Lake to Volunteer for our Fire District. We will provide the training to make you successful as a Volunteer Firefighter.
We also offer classes periodically if you desire to be a EMT.
SLRFD operates out of 2 fire stations. We respond to Fire and Medical Emergencies. We work hand in hand with all of our surrounding Depts. and agencies. We believe in training that makes our members comfortable in the duties that they will be asked to perform in the service of their community. We also believe in making volunteering fun. Though there are times when much is asked in the heat of the 911 dispatches, there is also plenty of time to have fun with your Volunteer Brothers and Sisters. You will become part of this family.
Please contact us if you have any interest or questions about volunteering. A call does not constitute a commitment and we would love to talk to you and answer any questions you may have. We need you!
