Fire Department

Frankfort’s 34-member fire department is responsible for providing coverage for the City of Frankfort, as well as Center, Jackson, Union and part of Washington Township and 94 square miles outside of the City limits in addition to having responsibility under mutual aid agreements with Michigan, Kirklin, Perry, Mulberry and Ross Townships. Since January 1 of this year, the Department became responsible for investigating fires for all of Clinton County, with an approximate population of 35,000 residents, more than doubling the coverage area.

Mission Statement

We, the Frankfort Fire Department are a team of professional firefighters dedicated to serving our community by protecting homes and families with pride, honor and dignity.

Vision Statement

The Frankfort Fire Department’s vision is to be the best department in the State of Indiana. We want our community to expect and demand the best the Frankfort Fire Department has to offer through training, education and serving our community.

As Fire Chief, I am honored to lead our 34 firefighters/EMTs who proudly serve our community with a variety of services including, but not limited to, fire prevention and safety, fire suppression, basic life support and public education.

To better serve our growing community and Industrial Park, our dedicated firefighters continually strive to enhance their skills through ongoing education and training. Through this specialized training, they will become more efficient in our Department’s special operations teams such as Hazmat, Confined Space, Rope Rescue, Hi-Angle Rescue and the Multi-County District Four Task Force Team.

On behalf of the Frankfort Fire Department, I want to thank our community for its continued support of our efforts and achievements. Under the leadership of Mayor Sheets and myself, we will ensure our mission of providing for the safety and welfare of the public remains the Frankfort Fire Department’s top priority.

Please feel free to contact us at 654-4329 or stop by any of our three fire stations any time!
