In August of 2006, the Idaho EMS Bureau licensed Silver City Fire & Rescue as a non-transport First Responder unit. The Owyhee County Sheriff provides dispatch. SCF&R provides basic emergency medical care to those in need. Last year, our volunteers donated a total of 6,132 hours on-call as a licensed Emergency Medical Services (EMS) unit.

Effective fire protection for historic Silver City and the surrounding area is a long-term goal for SCF&R. There are many challenges: adequate water supply, rough roads, sufficient trained personnel, historic structures and increasing recreational use of the surrounding area. Federal, state, county and private agencies encourage SCF&R by providing equipment, assisting with training and clothing volunteer fire fighters in required protective equipment. Each day improves our ability to provide effective fire protection and emergency medical care.

Silver City
Silver City is a historic mining town located in Owyhee County, Idaho. Gold was discovered here in 1863 in the streambed of Jordan Creek. Hard rock mines were in operation within the first year. Silver City went through several booms and busts, and today retains 53 historic structures and plenty of Old West charm. Silver City is carefully maintained by homeowners and its few year-round residents. More than 30,000 visitors brave the 24 mile, winding dirt road every summer.
