Thank you for visiting the Richardsville Volunteer Fire Department Website!!



The Richardsville Volunteer Fire Department covers approximately 126 square miles in northern Warren County, Kentucky out of 4 fire stations.  This means our department covers one of the largest fire districts in the Commonwealth of Kentucky!  Our population according to the 2010 census is approximately 11,386.  We are currently averaging around 800 runs per year which includes medical assists, structure fires, vehicle fires, brush fires, vehicle accidents, hazmat incidents and many other types of runs.  We have a fleet of 8 apparatus including 5 engines, 1 tanker, 1 brush truck, and 1 6x6 all terrain vehicle. 

We receive automatic mutual aid for structure fires from Gott, Smith's Grove, and Barren River fire departments and we provide automatic aid to them as well.  We also have mutual aid agreements with the remaining 5 county volunteer departments, the city of Bowling Green Fire Department, and neighboring county departments when requested.

We are pleased that you have stopped by to check out our website and we hope you find all the information you are looking for!  If you have any further questions feel free to contact us!
