With all of these industries, our fire department faces a wide array of emergency responses.
CCFD is a combination fire department consisting of 29 career and more than 150 part-time firefighters. With more than 80 fire apparatus and support vehicles, our department utilizes a variety of units to support our mission in Campbell County. We provide fire, rescue, EMS, and hazardous materials response services to approximately 50,000 citizens. Our volunteers provide county-wide coverage from 10 stations and 11 wild land support stations.
The career staff serves 24-hour shift coverage based at Fire Station #1 in addition to augmenting the other volunteer stations on their days off.
