Bowling Green Fire Department

The Bowling Green Fire Department is a fully paid department that achieved national accreditation in 2008 and reaccreditation in 2014 and 2018 through the Commission on Fire Accreditation International, also known as the Center for Public Safety Excellence. This accreditation gives us a rare achievement within the fire service in that only 3 fire departments in Kentucky and only 279 fire departments in the United States & Canada have this distinction.

Our department has a total of 138 employees working out of 6 stations and 1 administrative office building. Our 7th station is currently under construction and should open in early 2021. The department has the following divisions: administration, suppression, prevention/inspection and training. For more information, see the Bowling Green Fire Department Mission Statement. We invite you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
