Fire Department

The last few years have highlighted the importance of well trained and equipped firefighters to our nation, state, and local communities. Terrorism, raging forest fires, accidents and other incidents have tested the skill and grit of these dedicated community servants and their families.

The city of Nicholasville recognizes the value of a professional fire department and has invested in building a top-notch team. Only a few years ago, the department consisted of all volunteer firefighters. Today, the department of 49 professional firefighters and one administrative assistant provides service from three fire stations spread across the city.

The Nicholasville Fire Department protects a population of more than 29,754 residents and workers within an area of 13 square miles.

Everyday, these professionals are focused on their commitment to fulfilling their role in keeping the community as safe as possible.
