The Richardsville Fire Department covers approximately 126 square miles in northern Warren County, Kentucky out of 6 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 950 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 13 apparatus including 7 engines, 1 tanker, 2 brush trucks, 2 water rescue boats, 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.
