Fire Department
On behalf of the entire Papillion Fire Department, I’d like to say hello. Effective April 1, 2014, the Papillion Fire Department began providing fire, EMS, and rescue services to La Vista residents.

We have enjoyed the many years of working alongside the dedicated members of the La Vista Volunteer Fire Department and we honor their great tradition and history. They have set the standard for quality and effective service to the community.

It truly is a privilege for us to now be your fire department. Our goal is to exceed all expectations you have of us.

In addition to responding to emergency calls for help, you will see us very active in community events and in the schools. We make every effort to live out our mission statement. Since 1942, our community has included the Papillion Rural Fire Protection District and the City of Papillion. We are now proud to include La Vista as part of the family.

Our mission statement is, “To enhance the quality of life for our community. Our shared values ensure professional, effective, and efficient service delivery.” Our values are: compassion, courage, faithfulness, honesty, humility, loyalty, reliability, respect, and responsibility. We will live up to our mission and these values.

Your fire stations at 8110 Park View Blvd. (Station 3) and 10727 Chandler Rd. (Station 1) are now staffed 24/7 and I hope you will reach out to us if you have any concerns or questions. You can contact me directly at Station 1 at 402-339-8617, or via e-mail at .

For fire or patient care report requests, please contact Diane Carlson at 402-339-8617 or .

Respectfully Yours,

Bill Bowes
Fire Chief



In Case of Emergency
There are a few things needed to aid us in answering your emergency. 
  1. Make sure your address is clearly visible.
  2. Please keep your sidewalks and driveways clear in the winter time.
  3. Please keep your pets clear while we’re attending a patient.
  4. Store flammable liquids away from sources of ignition.
  5. Check your smoke and CO detectors monthly and change batteries with every daylight savings time.
  6. If you need our assistance for fire or EMS, it is important that we be able to advance our equipment into your home. Please keep sidewalks and driveways shoveled in the winter time so that we may have an unimpeded path to deliver fire and medical equipment.
  7. Pets can be especially protective of their owners.  If you call for a medical emergency, please have a family member secure your pet so we may attend your emergency without distraction or danger.
