The Laurel Volunteer Fire Department (LVFD) is proud and honored to have been able to serve the citizens of Laurel and the surrounding areas for over 100 years. LVFD’s main purpose is to provide firefighting and rescue emergency response for the community of Laurel, the 110 square miles surrounding Laurel and to all those who are traveling though and find themselves in need of assistance. In addition, the LVFD provides mutual aid to Billings, Park City, and CHS Industrial Fire Departments and assistance as needed to several surrounding Fire Departments, including Lockwood, Red Lodge, Columbus, Molt and Joliet.
The Laurel Volunteer Fire Department holds a long tradition of supporting the Community of Laurel with its firefighting and community service. In addition to firefighting and rescue, the fire department is known for its world class 4th of July fireworks, which is rated as one of the top 10 events in the Northwest, and its Christmas holiday celebration.
The Laurel Fire Volunteer Fire Department is also known for its award winning Fire Prevention program. With the motto “Prevention through Education”, the LVFD visits the children of Laurel several times a year, educating them on preventing fires and fire safety. The first week of October is named “Fire Prevention Week”. The week is filled with visits to the schools by the Firefighters, an open house where the Department’s doors are opened to the public and an hour long program for the children of the community.
