Fire Department

Riverside Fire District is a volunteer department covering Fire, EMS and Rescue operations for the Village of Rothschild and City of Schofield.

Riverside Fire District has highly trained firefighters and EMTs that respond to calls for service each year for the communities of the City of Schofield & the Village of Rothschild. These calls include Fires, Emergency Medical Services, Water and Ice Rescue emergencies, automobile accidents and many more.

Riverside Fire District is also active in fire prevention in the community. Firefighters visit schools and many civic organizations to talk about fire safety. Riverside Fire District also visits businesses within the city twice a year to go through Fire Prevention Surveys to ensure fire safety. Riverside Fire District will also visit your home (within the city limits) free of charge for a home fire survey. To schedule a home fire survey, please contact 715-359-3500.
