Staff & Board

Board of Trustees

MRFD is governed by a five-person elected Board of Trustees (BOT) who volunteer their service to the community as members of the Board.  MRFD and our citizens are very fortunate to have an active Board that is engaged and continues to support the activities of the organization and provide guiding leadership, policy, and funding oversight that enables the District to carry out our Mission.  The current five-member Board has over 100 years combined service to the Missoula Rural Fire District.

Administration

The MRFD administration consists of three Fire Chiefs, the Resource Manager, the Training Technician, the Office Manager/HR Specialist, and an Administrative Assistant.  The Fire District Chief, the Assistant Chief, and the Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal oversee all of the work of the District: from conducting inspections and reviews, to managing internal operations, to coordinating with outside agencies to meet the Community’s fire, medical, and emergency needs.
