Public Education Goals:

Zero loss in life, injury, property, and resources; prevent human-caused fires; reduce suppression costs and to increase awareness.

Other than a Home Sprinkler System, Smoke Detectors are your best defense in a Home Fire!

Fire Station Tours:

Tours are normally scheduled Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Each tour group will be educated on the basics of Home Fire Prevention, Personal Protection and Escape Planning, 911 Contact, and the methods the KFD uses to protect the citizens of Kingsport. Tours last between 45 minute and 1 1/2 hours. To schedule a tour contact Public Education Officer Barry Brickey by phone at 423-224-2820 or email:
