more information about us



The City of Frankfort Fire & Emergency Medical  Services (EMS) operate from four fire stations covering four districts.  These fire stations are strategically staffed with 87 personnel divided into three working shifts. Six of those personnel are Staff firefighters.  The city of Frankfort covers 22 square miles.  Each shift consists of 27 personnel that work a 24 hour shift on duty/48 hour off duty work schedule.  Our Fire Suppression Service apparatus fleet consists of two pumpers, two aerials, one ladder truck and two rescue trucks.  Our Emergency Medical Service fleet is made up of four frontline Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances and one Basic Life Support (BLS) transport ambulance.  These units provide fire suppression, emergency medical services, and rescue operations such as vehicle extrication and high angle rescue.  We also provide EMS and rescue to all of Franklin County, which covers over 200 square miles and a population of approximately 50,000 people.  Because Frankfort is the State capital, many employees commute to Frankfort during the business week, placing the population at almost 100,000 souls.
