A message from Finley Point Fire:

Finley Point Fire Department would like to thank Jacqueline McLean-Jones for her support and coordination of this fundraiser challenge in our community.
We at the department are always appreciative of the community support we receive and are proud to serve you.
We would also like to acknowledge and express our sincere gratitude to our fellow firefighters in all of the surrounding districts that answered the call for mutual aid and immediately responded to join us in the fight during the initial attack and during the long days that followed.
Engines and crews from all over the region came together as one; a true testament of the dedication of your firefighters. From Ferndale to Charlo, and every town in between, we encourage the citizens of both Lake and Flathead counties to support your local volunteer firefighters in whatever way you can.
Our hearts go out to those who lost homes as a result of the firestorm that swept down the mountain, but we are thankful that none of our residents lost their lives during the event.
Finley Point/Yellow Bay Volunteer Fire Department.

Flathead Lake Summer Fun Tips:

  • Always have a life jacket for each passenger on a boat.

  • Avoid alcohol, especially when operating a boat.

  • Be sure to have a well charged cell phone and a notification flag when pulling a skier or passenger tube.

  • Be alert, track each passenger and nearby watercraft .

Seasonal Open Burning Tips:

Be sure and check our Facebook page for open date burning dates and restrictions. A permit is required from the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes. Please visit for more information.
Any open burning MUST be monitored until cool to the touch. Use common sense and there is no need to notify 911 dispatch when planning an open burn during open burning season unless your burn gets out of control.

Winter Time Tips:

  • Help keep driveways clear of snow and obstructions.

  • Make sure all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly and chimneys are swept clean.

  • Driveways should be clearly marked with your street address. We need to find you to respond as fast as possible!
    Contact us immediately for a courtesy reflective sign if you reside in our fire district.

Traffic Safety:

DO NOT SPEED on Hwy 35. From Polson to Big Fork, we are known for the abundance of deer, bear, turkeys and domestic animals that share our road.
 Most importantly, cyclists on the highway and many cherry stands result in requiring complete concentration and safety for all.
