That reputation attracts the best and brightest young recruits who are interested in being part of a department that stays busy and runs a lot of different types of calls where they can get experience and exposure to a wide range of chalenging life saving situations.
Call volume is high in Kent for emergency medical services. Heart attacks, injuries, falls, trips, slips, and illness are daily events for Kent’s Fire Department.
What’s less well known — but no less important — is all the “extra” emergency services that Kent’s Fire Department is trained to provide. Things like swift-water training, ice rescue, and hazardous material response are a few of the specialty services that Kent’s Fire Department is able to provide that many cities and townships simply don’t have the technology or training to offer.
There’s no such thing as a “routine” emergency and it’s comforting to know that the Kent’s professional Fire Department is ready for whatever crisis comes their way.
