Emergency calls to 911 and the Sheriffs Office are dispatched by pager and radio to Fire Department members. Volunteers respond to local emergencies, and assist and support other nearby fire departments and the Surprise Valley Health Care District Emergency Service.  Local emergencies include home, ranch, and wild land fires, as well as vehicle and health emergencies.

The department has three fire trucks and is financed by various fund-raising activities and the Fort Bidwell Fire Protection District. Grants are occasionally sought to provide equipment and resource funds. The Fort Bidwell Volunteer Fire Department is a not-for-profit California corporation (see FBVFD, Incorporated).

The main fund-raiser is the Fort Bidwell Barbeque held each year on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend in cooperation with the Fort Bidwell Civic Club.
