Wilderness Ranch Fire Protection District (WRFPD)
Wilderness Ranch Fire has been providing fire and rescue services to East Boise County Idaho since 1981. In 2004, Wilderness Ranch Fire enlarged its response area and became a taxing Fire District in order to support the population growth and subsequent emergency service needs in our area. The Wilderness Ranch Fire Protection District (WRFPD) is governed by an elected board of three Fire Commissioners. The district runs from approximately mile marker 23 to mile marker 29.5 on Highway 21. It encompasses the Wilderness Ranch, Daggett Creek, Rimview, Osprey, and High Corral subdivisions. They may also respond to areas outside our district for mutual aid to other agencies, as they do for them.
The geography of WRFPD's response area provides remarkable opportunities for its personnel to respond to diverse emergencies, including wildland fire fighting, structure firefighting, extrication, technical rescue, water rescue, Haz-Mat mitigation, and emergency medical services.
To provide emergency services in the area, WRFPD relies on more than 40 volunteers—many of whom are your neighbors at Wilderness Ranch—who have become well trained and experienced in these disciplines. WRFPD is proud to offer one of the widest ranges of emergency services in Boise County.
WRFPD's Fire and EMS training schedule can be found here
. If you are interested in becoming a member of WRFPD as a firefighter, EMT, or both, contact Chief Colton McCarthy at (208) 342-1851.
East Boise County Ambulance District (EBCAD)
East Boise County Ambulance District is a largely volunteer-run organization committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities it serves by providing the highest quality of pre-hospital care and transportation for the sick and injured. Their mission is accomplished through the cooperation and collaboration of individual providers, their individual units, their Medical Director, command staff, and governing board in an environment that focuses on the safety and professional competency of all members in pursuit of efficient utilization of available resources.
EBCAD Unit 15's ambulance is housed at Wilderness Ranch Fire Station 1. EBCAD's sister units are located in Idaho City, Placerville, and Lowman. When necessary, Unit 15 backs up those other units, and they back up Unit 15's. MCA's providers are all EMT-Basic certified.
Unit 15's service area extends from the High Bridge (the county line on Highway 21) to mile marker 29.5 on Highway 21, and from Bogus Basin to Atlanta.
If you are interested in volunteering for EBCAD, either as an EMT or a driver, visit their website for more information.
