How We Serve You:
The Kokomo Fire Department provides 24-hour fire protection for all property within the City of Kokomo city limits and Center Township by full time professional firefighters. KFD also has a Hazardous Emergency Response team that responds to Hazardous Materials, Trench, Water and Tower emergencies throughout Howard County. Kokomo Fire Department’s Non-Emergency support services include the fire inspection/prevention division, the Training Division, and the fire investigation division.
The Kokomo Fire Department was formed in 1867. At that time, the department consisted of volunteers that used a bucket brigade. In 1892, the first paid fire department was formed and Ed Shauman was named chief. Shauman commanded a force of four firefighters. The first fire station was located at the corner of Walnut & Union streets. Today the Kokomo Fire Department consists of 90 career firefighters manning six stations. From our humble beginnings of one horse drawn carriage, 200 feet of hose, and five axes, we have evolved to six Engine Companies, One Heavy Rescue Company and One Aerial Company, along with 15 support vehicles, three boats, and 2 Reserve Engines.
