Fire Department

Your Safety, Our Priority

At the Shepherdsville Fire Department, our unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of our community drives everything we do. With a proud history of service, we stand as the protectors of the 12.5-square-mile city of Shepherdsville, KY. Our dedicated team of part-time and full-time firefighters work tirelessly to ensure that our residents, businesses, and visitors are safeguarded from a wide array of emergencies.

Evolution of Excellence

On August 12, 2019, the City of Shepherdsville transitioned away from volunteer firefighting to enhance the professionalism and efficiency of our services. Our department is now composed of a highly trained team of professionals, including a full-time Fire Chief, Assistant Chiefs, Fire Marshal, and an additional 42 full-time firefighters. These dedicated individuals work tirelessly, rotating through 24-hour shifts to ensure round-the-clock coverage.
