Welcome to North Ada County Fire & Rescue District
In 2010, North Ada County Fire and Rescue and Boise Fire Department entered into a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) that radically changed the face of the District. Under the terms of the JPA, the Chief, one Administrative Assistant, and all Operations and Prevention staff became employees of the Boise Fire Department. One Senior Administrative Assistant remains as the only direct employee of the District, and three elected officials comprise the Board of Commissioners for the District. While the Joint Powers Agreement has provided both tangible and intangible benefits to the District, the Commission remains committed to maintaining the distinct profile of our organization through active participation in the Joint Powers Agreement as well as through the Strategic Planning Process.
