Kenton Fire Department, a paid department, proudly protects citizens and property within the city limits and also the districts of Buck and Pleasant Townships. The Kenton Fire Department also has a paid medical emergency squad on staff that provides local urgent medical services.
Besides fire suppression, the department has expanded its duties and responsibilities in many other areas. They provide fire inspections to new and existing properties, have their own arson investigations bureau, perform and assist with hazmat operations throughout the county, have personnel trained and ready to respond to confined space rescues, underwater search and rescue, and fire prevention.
Kenton Fire Department recently added extrication to services provided when they acquired the Rescue truck and equipment from B-K-P in an effort to better assist and provide protection to our community.
