Fire Department


The Newport Fire Department is a completely volunteer fire department serving the city limits of Newport. We also have a mutual aid agreement with three adjoining districts, Fire Districts #3 and #4 and West Pend Oreille Fire District #1 of Idaho, bringing our total coverage to 160 square miles. Newport Fire Department’s ISO fire class is 7.

Currently 10 very dedicated people volunteer their time to provide fire services to all the citizens within our community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter for the City of Newport call Newport City Hall at (509) 447-5611.
