Founded 1971 Celebrating 44 years of Neighbors Helping Neighbors


Chief Justin Byrne

Welcome to the website of the Kent Fire Department.  Our goals as a department are the life safety and property protection of the residents and visitors of Kent.

Our department currently has over 70 members that volunteer their time and respond to your calls for assistance.  We are always looking to increase our membership.  If your interested stop at the fire station on a Tuesday evening or Sunday morning and ask what YOU can do.

I'm a resident of the community and have watched it grow. The Kent Fire Department has grown as well over the years to try and adapt to the ever changing needs of the town.  It is my goal and responsibility to ensure that we meet these needs and that we meet the standards and traditions of the fire service to the highest degree.

There are countless times over the years where I have witnessed the members of this department go above and beyond the call of duty either in support of each other, the community or in an emergency.  We should all be thankful and proud that we live in a community where people stand up and help each other in times of need.

We have a great team of people and thanks to our leaders both past, present and the support of the community, we have a very well equipped department.

Thank you for your continued support!
