Shepherdsville Fire Department provides service from two fire stations, protecting the 12.5 sq mile city of Shepherdsville, KY. Currently our department depends on the services of a combination of trained career and volunteer firefighters.
We currently employ 11 full time firefighters who work rotating 24 hour shifts, 3 part time firefighters who work rotating 12 hour shifts, a full time Fire Marshal, and a full time Fire Chief. We also have 2 Volunteer command officers and 24 Volunteer Firefighters.
Our Fire Department responds to a variety of incidents including fires, motor vehicle accidents, hazardous materials spills, gas emergencies, medical emergencies, and technical rescue incidents such as water and ice rescue, confined space rescue, vehicle extrication, etc.
Shepherdsville Fire Dept has the only fully equipped swift water rescue team in Bullitt County. Last year we rescued 7 individuals from Bullitt County's waterways. We have a fleet of four boats and a special operations command post loaded with all of the necessary rescue equipment for these situations.
In Addition to emergency response, we assist the City with fire and building code enforcement and provide inspections for business occupancies. We also participate in the annual WHAS Crusade For Children in the Spring, Trunk or Treat in the Fall, Breakfast with Santa in the Winter, and many other community and school events throughout the year.
