The Froid Volunteer Fire Department (FVFD) has been in continuous operation since April 2, 1915. It is funded through the budgets of Roosevelt County and the Town of Froid. In addition, the community has been very generous with donations and attendance at the annual bingo/dinner/silent and live auction held on the third Saturday each November. Most recently, some of these donated funds purchased a set of hydraulic rescue tools and gently used Type Four firefighting apparatus carrying 875 gallons of water.
The FVFD is dispatched by 911 to fires and other emergencies in the greater Froid area and often also assists or is assisted by the Bainville and Culbertson Volunteer Fire Departments. The FVFD meets on the first Thursday of each month at 7PM in the Froid Community Center which also houses six fire fighting vehicles as well as an Ambulance operated by volunteers associated with the Roosevelt Medical Center. The Department often has training sessions on the third Thursday of each month. If you are interested in serving your community as a volunteer firefighter you may contact any member or show up at any regular meeting.
If you are witnessing a crime in progress or are experiencing an emergency, please dial 911.
Frequently Asked Questions
May I burn trash and leaves inside the town limits?
A Roosevelt County Burn Permit will need to be filed prior to burning (See document link above). The acceptance of the permit will be determined by such things as current weather conditions. Please contact the Town Clerk's Office if you have any questions.
