The Kingsport Fire Department works to accomplish it’s mission of protecting lives and property by continually training to be the best in Firefighting, Hazardous Materials, Emergency Medical and Technical Rescue. We provide fire prevention and fire safety education, in addition to responding quickly and effectively when emergencies occur.
We strive to be good stewards of the tax payers dollars and to manage our resources in a way that we give the best possible service. We currently enjoy an ISO rating of Class 2 and are one of the three Tennessee departments that are Internationally Accredited Agencies through the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. We feel we have one of the finest fire and rescue services in the state.
