Re:       Kentucky Wildland Fire Deployment


The Kentucky Fire Commission is compiling a list of available career personnel to deploy to Neon, KY to aid local resources who are performing mitigation efforts of wildland fires across the locality. Kentucky firefighters will provide coverage through backfill of local firehouses and respond to calls for service.

Below is a link to a webform for departments to provide their interest:

We are seeking information on the number of career firefighters, company officers and district chiefs (or higher) that your department would be available to deploy. Deployed parties must hold accredited certification to the Firefighter 1 & Firefighter 2 level. Deployed parties must have structural firefighting gear and SCBA and provide their own bedding and toiletries. 

Deployment will occur within the next 24-48 hours. 

Questions should be directed to Fire Commission Director of Operations Jeremy Rodgers at or (859) 256-3180.
